Shahi Rice Phirni

Hi Friends,

When it comes to choosing desserts of the dessert counter, no one in my family is a big fan of indian desserts, they rather pick up a tiramisu, mousse or brownie with ice cream. However it's me who ends up tasting the malpuas, besan laddoos and halwas.  This week I tried to make an easy Indian sweet for my family. Nothing more easier than Phirni. And guess what!! They actually relished it.

Mouth watering Shahi Phirni

Phirni is a special indian sweet pudding that is a must in north India on festive occasions or special celebrations like diwali or Karwa Chauth. Its very simple to prepare and delicious when had chilled.


  • 1 bowl basmati rice
  • 3 tbsp ghee
  • 1 litre milk
  • 2 tbsp condensed milk
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 tsp saffron
  • tsp cardamom powder
  • Edible silver foil optional
  • 1 tbsp sliced pistachios
  • 1 tbsp sliced almonds


  1. First wash and soak the basmati rice in water and cook it the way you will make regular white rice without adding any salt.  
  2. Roast the almonds slivers and cashew nuts lightly and keep them aside.
  3. Take  a heavy bottom pan, add milk, sugar, condensed milk and give it a boil. 
  4. Blend the rice in a mixer with a little milk.
  5. Now add this paste to the boiling milk and wait for the mixture to thicken. 
  6. Add powdered Cardamom and saffron to the mixture.
Once the Phirni  is thick enough garnish it with fried and chopped nuts before serving.
