Rice Phirni: Rice phirni is a traditional Indian sweet. A different part of India have their own types of phirni—Punjabi phirni and Kashmiri phirni are especially well known. Kashmiri Phirni is known as Kashmiri phirun, the only difference between these two is that phirun is made with grounded rice and saffron more like a thick kheer and in Punjabi Phirni we use rice flour rest all the ingredients are the same.

Sweets are a very important part of Indian cuisine, in some parts of India sweets are essential after a meal and in some parts, they offer sweets before a meal. Sweets are offered to God as prasad also on auspicious occasions. Phirni is Mughlai sweet and very tastefully preferred by Indians. 

Even though it is sometimes confused with rice kheer because of the use of rice grains, yet there is a slight difference. basically, for phirni the rice grains are soaked in water and grounded to a coarse paste which is later mixed with thickened milk.

In my house, phirni is one of the favourites among all the Indian sweets as it is very simple to make and very delicious. I am giving you step by step recipe for the phirni just follow the steps and all done.
