This was supposed to be a normal rice Phirni but then I changed my mind to make it special. I added half the amount of rice and rest different types of nuts.I was very apprehensive in trying it out but it came out well.It was a mixed nuts phirni which has fig,almonds,cashew,walnuts,pistachio and raisins.I soaked these nuts in water and then grinded to a fine paste

Basmati Rice-1/4 Cup
Milk- 4 cups
Mixed Nuts Paste(as mentioned above)-1/2 Cup
Sugar-1/2 Cup or upto taste
Cardamom Powder-1/2 Tsp

1.Wash and soak the rice for an hour or so.
2.After an hour,grind the rice coarsely with little milk.
3.In a heavy bottom vessel,bring the milk to a boil stirring continuously.
4.After 10-15 mins,turn the heat down and let the milk simmer and reduce to half.
5.Now add the coarsely grinded rice and let it thicken.
6.After 5-6 mins,add the sugar,mixed nuts paste,cardamom powder and mix well.
7.Once done transfer the phirni to a serving bowl and garnish with nuts of your choice.

Serve hot or chilled!!!!!
