Shahi means Royal and phirni is an Indian sweet or dessert usually served in earthen bowls during weddings and festivals. This Shahi Gulab Jamun phirni is a nice twist to the regular one. I have added store bought mini gulab jamuns to it and garnished with silver foil, rose petals and almond and pista flakes further enhancing the flavor of it. The flavor and essence of kesar (saffron) gives a nice deep yellow color and a subtle aroma to this sweet dish.
Wash the rice and soak in enough water for 30 minutes.
Drain the water and grind in a blender to make a coarse paste.
Heat a heavy bottom pan and add milk in it.
Add ground rice and saffron soaked in milk and cook on low heat till the milk is reduced to half and the phirni has thickened.
Add cardamom powder and sugar and cook till the phirni has thickened to right consistency.
Garnish with almond and pistachio flakes, silver foil and dried rose petals.
