Happy to all my readers. Let me begin the year with a sweet dish.Phirni is an Indian dessert where rice is slow cooked, sweetened, flavored and served chilled.One can make this dessert plain or with any seasonal fruits.I have already post rose phirni , mango phirni, Chocolate phirni. To add to my collection here is another one with kesar/saffron.
Actually, it is prepared with rice but here I took a shortcut and used rice flour to make it.Also, all my phirnis are by the same method only.As a sweet may all things be sweet and happy this new year.
