Kesar Malai Phirni

on December 18, 2014

“Phirni” has always been one of my favorite sweet dish. I had first had it in some moghlai restaurant in mangalore. They had served it in a small earthern pot and tasted very delicious !! I have tried many variations of phirni till now, but so far this one’s my fav !! Quite an easy dessert, ready in minutes 🙂 and very very delicious and of course rich 😛 Well once in a while its ok to have calorie laden food 😉 Isn’t it ladies ? 🙂


  • Basmati Rice (Soaked for 30 min) : 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp
  • Sugar : 3 tbsp (Please check the sweetness according to your taste)
  • Condensed milk : 1/4 cup
  • Milk : 500 ml
  • Kesar : a few strands (Soaked in warm milk)
  • Vanilla Essence : 1/2 tsp (I like that mild vanilla flavour in my phirni, but you may skip this if you want to)
  • Cardamon : 3 pods (Coarsely grounded)
  • Mixed dry fruits (pistachio, almond, cashews, or any of your choice) – For garnish, and serve


  • Grind the rice into a coarse paste with little water
  • Heat milk in a thick bottom nonstick pan. Add sugar and keep stirring on a low flame. Now the malai will start forming keep mixing the same with milk.
  • Next add the ground rice mixture and keep stirring till its starts thickening, Pour the condensed milk at this stage along with kesar, vanilla essence and cardamoms.
  • Simmer for 2 min. Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with chopped dry fruits and let it set in the refrigerator for atleast 2-3 hours before serving.
