Firni / Rice Pudding

Ammi,can I lick off the pan”. This is what we used to ask every time my Ammi(Mother)makes Firni.
When she fills up all the bowls, there is scrapes left on the sidewall of cooking pan and we enjoys licking off the pan with the index finger.
Did you do the same? Or your kiddu has asked you something like that?
Now, you can see since childhood I’m eating this Firni and things related to our childhood always gets special place to our Heart. This is the reason I wanted to present it to you in a different style, and Alhumduliallah, certainly I have achieved my goal. I took extra effort to make Firni visually appealing.
Firni or you can say rice pudding, the procedure calls for soaked rice and it use to thicken the milk and settled as per your mould shape.  

Preparation Time: 15 minutes 
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Refrigeration: 1-2 hours
Serves: 12

Milk1 lit
Sugar110 gm
Rice100 gm
Kewra4-5 drops
Dried fruits50 gm

  1. Soak rice in a medium size bowl for 30 minutes.Cover it with tap water. Later, coarsely grind it and keep it aside.
  2. Dissolve sugar in a raw milk and strain it.
  3. Keep the milk pot on gas, when it comes to boiling point add grounded rice and keep it stirring on high flame for 10-12 minutes.
  4. Lastly, add Kewra and stir it well.
  5. Pour into the prepared dish or small serving bowls.
  6. Sprinkle the sliced dried fruits and keep it in refrigerator for an hour.
  7. Serve the chilled Firni to your guest.

  RS Notes :-) 
  • Never leave you spatula while stirring, avoid making lump.
  • Rice should be coarsely ground, do not make it too thin or leave whole grains.
  • It's not necessary to blanch the dry fruits and if you want to do so here is the link

    I love Malay food but regret have not tried this particular dish.
