Low Cal Badam Ki Phirni Recipe Card


Hindi: chawal
How many times have we thought rice is a blessing? We use it for holy purposes but we also can pressure up a quick pulao or khichdi when hunger pangs are drumming away! This is one grain that is about 98% percent digestible. In India we are familiar with Basmati, Patna or brown rice but it is also available as Italian Rice and Glutinous Rice which is popular in Chinese and Japanese cuisines.

Prep Time : 31-40 minutes

Ingredients for Low Cal Badam Ki Phirni Recipe

  • Rice 5 tablespoons

  • Almonds

  • Skimmed milk 5 cups

  • Almonds blanched & crushed 8-10

  • Jaggery (gur) 4 tablespoons

  • Green cardamom powder 1/2 teaspoon

  • Rose water 1 teaspoon

  • Pistachios blanched and slivered 4-6


Step 1

Soak rice in one cup of water for thirty minutes. Drain and grind the soaked rice into a fairly smooth paste. Dilute the rice paste in half a cup of water and keep aside. Boil milk in a non-stick saucepan.

Step 2

Reduce heat, and add ground rice mixture. Cook on medium heat for about five minutes, stirring continuously or till the mixture thickens. Add jaggery, crushed almonds and green cardamom powder. Reduce heat and cook till jaggery has completely dissolved. (You may notice a little curdling of milk. Ignore, as it is quite common for some varieties of jaggery to have this effect on milk.)

Step 3

Remove from heat and stir in rose water. Remove and pour into separate serving bowls, preferably earthenware. Garnish with pistachios. Chill it in the refrigerator for an hour before serving.
