Jaggery Phirni

Phirni/Firni is a delectable creamy dessert which is completely gluten free. Its a super easy dessert which is a must in Northern part of India especially during festivals. Phirni is prepared with soaked and grounded rice, cooked in milk and sweetened with sugar. Its quite a fabulous delightful dessert to serve after a meal which makes a prefect sweet dessert to enjoy or else to enjoy with your near ones during a festival.

Gluten free jaggery Rice  phirni

Am running this week's blogging marathon with 'Gluten Free Desserts' as theme,after two delectable desserts i couldnt stop myself to post this fantastic gluten free phirni. Though i have tried phirni couple of times, i havent sweetened them with jaggery. Obviously i want to dish out phirni with organic jaggery which i have carried all the way from India. Jaggery works awesome and gives a super catchy caramel colour to this delicious phirni.

Using jaggery in phirni must have given it a amazing flavour and those phirni bowls look fantastic .

Yet i have to try phrini on my own, instead of sugar, jaggery is a healthy option to try it out. Looks delicious!!!

Lovely caramel color to the phirni. For me whenever I think of using jaggery and milk together in a dish I am terrified. I have had tough times with the milk curdling. I wonder how you managed. Is it the quality of jaggery or is there a technique I am missing?

I make kheer with jaggery and that tastes amazing. This phirni must have tasted better than that being more creamy. And love the color of it
