Cooking time: 15 ~ 20 minutes

Serves: 2



1 1/2 cup whole milk/ evaporated milk

3 ~ 4 tbsp Sugar or  to taste

1 1/2 tbsp rice flour

1 1/4 tnsp rose water

2 tbsp crushed pistachios or Slivered almonds for garnishing  


1. In a Sauce pan, mix sugar and milk together till sugar dissolves.

2. In a small mixing bowl, mix rice flour with required milk mixture( I used 1/4 cup of milk), then whisk it into the remaining milk. It will ensure lump free mixture.

3.  Now add rose water and stir. Heat the mixture in medium heat and whisk continuously. After 4 ~ 5 minutes, Mixture starts to thicken.

4. Stir continuously until you get porridge like consistency. Garnish with nuts and serve warm or chill.

Note: Do not add more rice flour, then it will turn fereni to paste.
