Kashmiri Phirni/Kong Phirin/Kashmiri Semolina Pudding

Phirni is a delectable dessert prepared with rice as the main ingredient. Traditionally phirni is prepared on special occasions like Diwali, Holi, Karwa chauth and Ramazan etc. Coming to this fantastic Kashmiri Phirni, this pudding calls for semolina though many Kashmiri phirni calls for rice.This dessert has a super thick creamy texture and tastes absolutely delicious when served chilled. Kong means saffron and Phirin means sweet pudding. This semolina pudding calls for milk and khoya, which turned out this ultimate pudding more delicious and highly irresistible. Whoever loves Milk based sweets, will definitely fell in love with this beautiful pudding.
