Today's recipe is simple phirni presented with rose infused strawberries which I learnt during a workshop last month. The sweet which I am going to share today comes with a caution: “ Likely to be emptied instantly on arrival.” Hence, phirni is to be prepared with generous quantity so that all guests and hosts alike could have to their heart’s fill. And don’t be surprised if your guests ask for refill for this sweet even before finishing half way with the apprehension that others might take away your share. So it’s the culmination of a great meal with a high.
Sending this pleasing to eyes colored phirni to Priya's Valentine's Day Recipe Contest sponsered by Cuponation
50 gm Basmati Rice, pounded to a coarse powder
1 Ltr. Full cream milk
3 tbsp Sugar
2 pinch Cardamom powder
For the topping-
250 gms fresh Strawberry
Few mint leaves
2 tbsp Rose syrup
2 tbsp Water
Remember don't make a smooth paste of rice while grinding as fine powder will make it taste like custard ! Take a heavy bottomed saucepan and bring milk to a boil on low flame by stirring continuously. Add rice powder and with a spatula stir vigorously.
Cook on slow flame while stirring continuously and cook till it thickens. Add in sugar and cardamom powder.
By now the consistency of milk will be thick like custard (take care there are no lumps formed). Pour into 2 big glasses or 4 small glasses and keep in fridge for atleast 4 hours.
Slice the strawberries into thin slices and mix in rose syrup with water, mint leaves. Let this mixtures sit in and soak all the flavours for an hour.
Serve the phirni chilled with strawberry and garnish with a mint spring.
