Strawberry Phirni

Sorry all for my absence from blogging for 2 weeks as I was busy with some personal work.

I am back now with a very popular North Indian dessert called Phirni. Phirni is also known as rice pudding. Phirni can be made according to one’s taste.





I have made so many dishes out of strawberries, so when my friend bought some, I thought of making phirni out of it.I usually make phirni, as it is easy to make. I thought of adding some strawberries for a unique taste. The red luscious pieces of strawberries is a feast to the eyes.

My mom used to make this, refrigerated and used to serve this when we came back from school. So when I am here for vacations I thought of making this by adding some strawberries and my mom loved this new twist.
