Phirni is a kashmiri milk based sweet pudding generally containing ground rice paste. Milk is thickened a bit and rice paste is cooked along with it to obtain a thick custard sweet. Various fruits and nuts are added as flavoring during the process. Classic strawberry phirni is a simple version of phirni using rice flour and chopped stawberries.
- Dissolve the rice flour in 1/4 cup of water to make a smooth paste without any lumps.
- Bring the milk to boil in a heavy bottomed vessel.
- Gradually add the rice flour paste and boil on low flame till the milk thickens.
- Add the sugar, stir it continuously and let the sugar completely melts and cook till the rawness of the rice goes.
- Remove from heat, cool to room temperature and stir in chopped strawberries.
- Serve strawberry phirni chilled and garnish with pistachios and strawberries.
- Instead of using rice flour, soak rice in water for half an hour and grind it into fine paste.
- If the phirni tastes raw, make sure to cook rice flour or ground rice thoroughly before removing from heat
