Firni / Phirni

Firni / Phirni is a sweet pudding, made by boiling milk, sugar and rice, it's popular sweet dish of India, made for festivals or important occasions/celebrations. The rice used in this sweet dish is coarsely powdered, so its without the individual grains of rice and with extra goodies of dry fruits and creamy. I am, sure you will loved it.
500 ML Milk
2 Tablespoons Heaped Basmati Rice 
½ Cup Fresh Cream  
¼ Cup Sugar  
2 Tablespoons Each Almonds & Pistachio - silvered 
½  Teaspoon Cardamom powder
Wash the rice and soak it for 2 hours.  After that drain all the water in a fine mesh colander and then dry it on a clean cloth  for  an hour or so ( it should be slightly wet not completely dry).  After that grind it to a coarse powder. 
Boil milk, add  rice, bring it to boil, stirring constantly to avoid lumps. Reduce the flame on medium low and stir continuously. Add more milk if starts to thicken and cook till the rice is done. 
Now add the sugar and again stir till the sugar melts.   Now add the fresh cream stir it and take it off flame. Add half of the pistachio and almond slivers, cardamom powder and stir well.   Chill it for few hours.  
Serve  this cold in kullad pots (terracotta clay pots) garnished with pistachio and almond slivers.
