Phirni is a traditional Kashmiri dish, it is neither Kheer nor pudding. It is creamier since Khova is added to it and it is cooked in milk, I can say rich in calcium.

How To Make Phirni Recipe
Different ingredients are used to make phirni, here I have used normal rice you can also use basmati or any flavoured rice. I have prepared my own khova if you find this difficult you can get fresh khova in markets. I have not used milkmaid you can also use it.
Chilled Phirni tastes good, once the Phirni is ready put it in clay pots and refrigerate it. The clay pot absorbs the excess moisture and makes it perfect, creamy and tasty.
