Shahi Khoya Firni/ Shahi Mawa Firni

Shahi Khoya Firni/ Shahi Mawa Firni is my favourite dessert. If you know me, I dont drink milk but I can definitely eat milk in this form 😀

Ayesha’s Kitchen

Ingredients:

  • 2 litre full cream milk
  • 1 cup rice flour (mixed with 2 cups lukewarm milk)
  • 1 tbspn cardamom powder
  • 1.5 cups raw sugar
  • Few drops of kewra
  • 1 cup crumbled khoya (2 cups full fat powder milk, 1 cup full cream, 1 tbspn sugar and a pinch of cardamom powder mixed and microwaved for 4 minutes. Cool down for 10 minutes and crumble with hands)
  • Almonds and pistachios for garnishing
  • 1 chandi ka warq (silver edible foil)

Method:

  1. Make khoya according to the instructions given above.
  2. Mix rice flour, cardamom powder and kewra with milk. Avoid lumps and keep aside until needed.
  3. Boil milk in a thick bottomed, non-stick pot and add sugar. Stir well.
  4. Give milk and rice flour mixture a stir before adding in the milk and then add to the milk with constant stirring.
  5. Cook on low medium heat with frequent stirring until the milk gets to a thick paste consistency. Add half of the khoya, give a gentle last stir and remove from flame.
  6. Let it cool for 30 minutes in the pot.
  7. Transfer into the serving dish, cover it with a cling wrap with wrap touching the firni to avoid the film that comes of the milk dishes. Refrigerate for atleast 4 hours.
  8. Take off the wrap, tidy up the dish and garnish with the left over khoya, nuts and chandi ka warq.
  9. Serve.
