Yummy Firnee !

My favorite sweet dish! Made my way!

You would need:
1 ltr. milk
25 gms (gobindo bhog*) rice, powdered
1 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of custard powder (vanilla)
1 pod of cardamom/ powder
1 tablespoon of rose water
slivered cashews/pistachio/almond for garnishing

how you do it:
Boil the milk with the sugar in a dekchi.
Add cardamom, powdered.
Wait till the mixture reduces to two thirds.
Add the dry rice powder.
Stir constantly for three to four mins.
Reduce heat.
In half a cup of milk mix the custard powder.
Add it to the mixture.
Stir constantly.
Take it off the heat.
Add rose water.
Constantly keep on stirring the mixture for next 20 mins.
(I know, it does sound tedious, but it gives a lump free smooth texture to your firni.)
Pour small amounts of this mixture in earthen pots.
Shove it in the refrigerator.
Take them out after 3 hours or so.
Garnish with nuts.

p.s. * this doesn't taste as good if gobindo bhog rice is not used! Trust me!
