Cooking Time

Preparation Time : 5

Cook Time : 45

Total Time : 50


Serves 6

  • 1 cup Quinoa

  • 2 cup full fat Milk

  • 2 1/2 cup water to cook quinoa

  • 1/2 cup 3 tablespoons more to caramelise

  • 1/2 teaspoon Cardamom powder

  • 1 cup Whipped cream

  • 1 tablespoon Ghee

  • 1/4 cup crushed Nuts of your choice

  • 1 pinch Salt


  • 01

    Wash and rinse quinoa under running water to remove any bitterness from the grains.

  • 02

    Heat ghee in a heavy bottomed pan.

  • 03

    Add in the rinsed quinoa and stir fry for about 5 minutes in medium heat. You will get a nice aroma from the pan.

  • 04

    When nice aroma starts emitting, add hot water to the pan, also add a pinch of salt and cook.

  • 05

    When quinoa becomes soft and water almost dries out, add milk and 1/2 cup of sugar.

  • 06

    Boil for 4-5 minutes to reduce the milk. Add cardamom powder.

  • 07

    In the meantime add 3 tablespoon of granulated sugar and 2 tablespoon water in a pan and bring to heat. Don't stir or touch the mixture.

  • 08

    When the mixture changes colour to light golden brown(that means sugar caramelizes), transfer the mixture to the firni immediately.

  • 09

    Give phirni a good mix and remove from heat to cool down.

  • 10

    When quinoa firni cools down to room temperature, add whipped cream. Whipped cream helps to make the firni very light and fluffy.

  • 11

    Also add in crushed nuts. I have only walnuts in my pantry. So I used them, you can add in any nuts of your choice.

  • 12

    Mix them nicely so that cream incorporates to firni. Transfer to a serving bowl and keep in the refrigerator to chill. You can also serve them in room temperature.
