Shahi Kesar Gulab Jamun Phirni

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 it with silver foil, rose petals, and almond and pistachio flakes further enhancing the flavor it. The flavor and essence of Kesar (saffron) give a nice deep yellow color and a subtle aroma to this sweet dish.
