Fereni ( Persian Dessert )

This month the theme was Persian Cuisine  for  IFC  (International Food Challenge ) an event started by  Sara  & Shobana  . And though our this month's host Savitha Ramesh  had given us a wide variety of dishes to chose from since I was very busy and didn't have time to try out more exotic dishes I opted for this simple elegant dessert called Fereni .


This is much like our popular Kashmiri Phirni . The only difference being in phirni the rice is soaked and the ground to paste whereas in fereni ready made rice flour is used. Though the dish hardly takes any time to prepare you get a very delicious dessert perfect for special occasions or parties.






Ingredients :

2 cups ..........................milk
3 tbsp.........................sugar
2 tsp....................rice flour
2 tbsp................rose water
1/2 tsp...............crushed cardamoms



Method : 


In a non stick pan boil 1 n 1/2 cup milk with sugar.

In the remaining 1/2 cup milk add rice flour and mix well.

When the milk sugar mixture boils add the rice flour .

Stir continuously and keep the flame low.

When the mixture thickens add rose water .

Add cardamom powder and cool the fereni.

Chill it till the serving time.
