A royal , delicious dessert prepared in a jiffy with very less ingredients . Pheniyaan is a traditional Pakistani dessert . This dessert is also common in few parts of India . Pheni is one type of vermicelli that is thin and already fried, round shaped ingredient . Children wouldn’t say No to relish this sweet . I prefer using palm candies to refined sugar for health benefits . It’s purely optional .Adding turmeric to this milk gives an added flavour and taste . It’s again optional .
