How to make Kesar Pista Phirni

  1. Pick, wash and soak rice for 1 ½ hours.
  2. Boil milk in a heavy bottomed pan and set aside. Drain and grind the rice coarsely.
  3. Boil saffron and set aside. Blanch pistachios, peel and cut into slices.
  4. Add the coarsely ground rice paste to the milk and cook stirring continuously so that there are no lumps and it does not burn or stick to the bottom of the pan.
  5. Add sugar and mix. Add green cardamom powder, saffron and mix. Add rose water. When the mixture starts thickening take it off the flame.
  6. Pour into soaked Katoras / earthenware pots and keep them in the refrigerator to chill for 1 to 1 ½ hours.
  7. Serve chilled garnished with slivered pistachio nuts, saffron and dried rose petals.
My Tip: Use a heavy bottomed pan to make phirni, in order to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pan and ultimately burning.
