Kesar Badam Phirni

Kesar Badam Phirni - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
Simple Kesar Phirni I prepared and added lots of almonds as our kids usually don't eat dry fruits. My daughter is averse to nuts. So what I did. I ground lots of almonds along with rice, so it became yummy, creamy and rich. For bazaar-waala look I served this in kulhads and in my home it was loved and appreciated that I brought this from market. I am sure your guests will also ask from where did you buy this.
