It seems like Yesterday when I came across a Group of Bloggers on Google + sharing their delicious food based on a particular theme on every Monday like “healthy ingredients, family and comfort food recipes, real, local and sustainable food” and all the members have to cook the recipe according to theme ingredient and reveal it on the said date. By doing this one gets to learn new techniques and explore different cuisines. What attracted me is the passion of these bloggers to come up with new theme and cook accordingly despite their busy schedules.
One Simple mail to Jolly and I am part of this Group and donot know how time flies and we have came to celebrate our 25th Foodie Monday BlogHop today. During this journey I came across some wonderful friends like Krithika, Rupal, Nisa,Sujata,Waagmi, Preethi and Jolly who have become part of my life. Thank you everyone of Foodie Monday BlogHop for your wonderful Contributions and making me realize my passion for experimenting with food and enjoying it on every Monday.
So to celebrate our 25th Foodie Monday Blog Hop theme of Sweets , I decided to make SHAHI PHIRNI WITH PISTACHIOS AND FRUIT TOPPINGS.Who can resist chilled creamy Phirni, an absolute delight…and my all-time fav Indian Dessert! But making it the traditional way requires much of your time and attention…with constant supervision.
Phirni is a traditionalrice puddingthat is prepared with full cream milk, paste of soaked raw rice, sugar and cardamom. The cooked creamy rice mixture is set in earthen clay pots or plates, richly garnished with edible silver leaf and garnished with nuts like pistachios and almonds. Phirni has its origins in the Middle East and has made its way to the Indian sub continent through the Mughals. You will find thiseasy sweet dessert prepared in the homes of Hindus and Muslims to celebrate festivals like Eid, Holi andDiwali.
