About this Recipe

An easy and healthy dessert made with Black rice. I have used jaggery as a sweetener to bring out the naturally nutty taste of the black rice. Instead of using nuts of any kind, I decided to top it up with a fruit. Makes it healthier and the acidity in the fruit acts as the perfect foil to the sweetness of the phirni. Though had quite a few fruits stocked up but I decided to pick on the Kiwi as it makes for a lovely contrast with the lavender hues of the black rice .

Ingredients & Quantity
  • 1 liter whole milk
  • 4 tbsp black rice powder
  • 4 tsp jaggery or as per taste ( I used the light hued variety )
  • 2 kiwis ( for topping )
  • 1/2 cup cold milk for mixing with the rice powder
How to cook?
  1. Soak the black rice grains for 4 hours. Drain and spread on a plate to air dry. Once the surface moisture evaporates, grind it into a powder.
  2. Mix the rice powder in the cold milk.
  3. Boil the milk till it reduces to half of the original volume.
  4. Pour in the rice mixture and keep stirring till it starts to thicken a bit. Once the consistency reaches that of a custard, mix in the powdered jaggery.
  5. Remove from the flame and allow it to cool down a bit. Pop it into the fridge for a couple of hours.
  6. Just before serving, peel and chop the kiwi into thin half-moon slices.
  7. Pour the phirni into dessert glasses. Top it up with the kiwi and serve.
