Microwave Gulabi Phirni | Rose Flavored Rice Pudding in Microwave | Step by Step Recipe

>>  Thursday, May 12, 2011

Phirni is such a easy recipe to make in microwave. When I think of all that hard work you normally have to do for making a sweet with milk, it seems such like a child's play when making it in microwave. I felt it was unbelievable quick. Of course if you are ready to wait for it to cool down or be served chill.

Phirni is a dish that is basically made with rose water and gulkand, or badam phirni or even kesar phirni. Since rose essence was available, it was made instead of the other two.

Microwave Gulabi Phirni
For easy of reading, I have included the method in steps.

Soak the rice in water for 15 mins.

Using enough water, grind to a smooth paste
Boil 1/2 liter milk for 7 mins in micro
Remove and add the ground rice paste.
Micro for another 3 minutes.

When done you will see the milk has become think enough
Add sugar and rose essence

Micro again 5 minutes.

Now it has become really thick.

Roast the nuts in ghee and add to the phirni.

Microwave Gulabi Phirni

Milk - 1/2 Liter
Basmati Rice - 2 tsp
Sugar - 1 cup
Rose Essence 1/2 a cap
Dry fruits
Ghee - 1 tsp

Method to prepare:

Micro Milk at 10 mins (Power High) Check at 7 minutes
Soak rice in water and grind to a smooth paste, add more liquid if required.
Mix the ground rice to the milk, stir well. Micro for the balance 3 minutes
Once done add the rose essence, and sugar. Mix well.
Micro again fro 5 mins for the sugar to get dissolved.
Allow it to cool.
Meanwhile roast the dry fruits in ghee and add to the phirni.
Allow it to cool, refrigerate and serve cool

  • Adding more rice will get the phirni really thick. In a regular phirni, gulkand is also added. But I didn't add as I didn't have it on hand.
  • When you boil milk in microwave, it normally never boils over. But in high power for 10 minutes it is enough to get it to a very high boiling point.
