India’s sweet affair is no stranger to us. One of the oldest desserts like malpua to rich and decadent halwas, our country has left no stone unturned to satiate the sweet tooth. No wonder we have a fusion of Indo-Western flavours in our desserts too, in the form of gulab jamun cheesecake, motichoor ladoo parfait and what not. From light and mildly sweet to the thick ones, drenched in sugar or chashni, there is no dearth of options when it comes to mithais. A couple of them may not have originated on our soil but have definitely become a favourite since they arrived. Jalebi and gulab jamun are a case in point. 

Recently, Jamie Lever took to her Instagram stories to share an image of a classic Indian sweet treat which is again not from India. Johny Lever’s daughter was seen enjoying a matka of phirni and it looked absolutely tempting. Captioned as, “Bhai Wah!” (wow man!), she expresses her delight at the taste of the sweet meat. Garnished with chopped pistachios and nuts, the light yellow-coloured dessert seems to be an appetizing bite. Wondering what it looks like? Here take a look.

Rich and full of natural flavour, this phirni is pure bliss. The nuttiness of almonds aka badam is balanced well by the sweetness of gud aka jaggery. Since jaggery has cooling properties, this is an ideal summer dessert.
