Firni (Rice Pudding)

When it comes to talk about the Eid dishes, then desserts are conspicuous, because its a Islamic tradition to eat some sweet before going for eid prayer. Families adopt their own traditional recipes which fluctuate from region to region. But in Pakistan Sheer Khurma, Kheer, Vermicelli pudding and sweets are common. I am going to share recipe which is well made from my mother. Whatever feast is, but when we come towards the traditional desserts, this work is always assigned to my mother who always does her best. This firni is something like rice pudding which is cooked on slow flame to make it thick and condensed.
 the Firni is scrumptious and fulfilling. People who love kheers and payasam will surely like dish. Easy and quick to make, this recipe is an excellent dessert option

 3 cups Milk
 3 tbsp. Rice
 5 tbsp. Sugar
 1/4th Cup Blanched Almonds (sliced)
 1 tsp. Green Cardamom (crushed)
 1/2 tsp. Kewra Essence

Soak rice in water for a few hours, then drain the water and grind rice into a smooth paste.
In a non-stick saucepan, boil milk. After it comes to a boil, reduce the heat to simmer.
Over a moderately low heat, add rice, sugar and cardamom to the milk and stir constantly, till it turns thick.
Remove from heat and add almonds. Put in serving bowl and let it come down to room temperature. Now, put in the fridge and chill.
