Blogging Marathon# 32: Letter F

Theme: A-Z Dishes from Andhra Pradesh

Dish: F for Firni/ Hyderabadi Phirni/ Firni

My daughter turns 1 today. Past 1 year flew so fast that I can’t even believe it’s time to celebrate her first birthday today. We are having a party with few of our dear friends and family.

What better way to celebrate my little ones birthday than this rich and creamy firni/ phirni. I saw the recipe for Mango phirni on Etv-Urdu channel and I knew right away that I had to make it for this A-Z series. The cook on tv used rice flour to make firni, but I used ground rice powder and it turned out great. It got thick and creamy as it sat in the refrigerator. An awesome make ahead dessert that is sure to please everyone in a party.

So let me leave you with some clicks of this yummy dessert, I have to get back to my daughter’s birthday party 🙂
