Phirni is a popular North Indian sweet dish.Easy to make is a kind of rice pudding.usually South Indians prepare payasam a sweet dish similar to phirni,unlike payasam it does not use whole grains of rice.Phirni made with coarsely ground rice,flavored with lots of saffron,cardamom,lot of nuts.It is usually thick in consistency and we can make it thin by adding more milk as per our taste.phirni can enjoyed well when it is cold.I'm posting this recipe in Blogging Marathon in#55 under the theme in no bake desserts.
