  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.

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.
