Caramel Pineapple Phirni

Recently i joined a contest going on at Manjula's Kitchen and this month's ingredient is Rice, after breaking my head finally i wanted to make something different as phirni since its my favourite dessert..Its really a pleasure when ur recipe got selected among the first five best recipes, voila mine been selected and now the voting is going on in Manjula's Space, dont forget to vote for me..I surely need ur supports and votes to win this contest friends.

Coming to the recipe I love phirnis and rarely heard peoples saying no to this beautiful milk based dessert, but this time i wanted to make them with a twist using fresh pineapple chunks, since there were some leftover fresh pineapple chunks also with home made caramel syrup..Both together turned out this beautiful looking phirni as a rich and wonderful dessert..If u are bit lazy or u dont prefer to make ur caramel syrup u can definitely go for store bought one, this fruity rice phirni tastes amazing when they served chilled, eventhough i enjoyed them warm..Adding cream is completely optional and u can skip very well the fresh cream.

Caramel-Pineapple Phirni

1litre Whole milk
2tsp Fresh cream
1/2cup Basmati rice
1cup+3tbsp Sugar
1cup Pineapples (chopped finely)
1tsp Cardamom powder
1/4tsp Nutmeg powder
1tbsp Almond flakes
1tbsp Ghee

Wash and soak rice for an hour..Keep half a cup of milk aside and boil the remaining milk..Drain the rice and grind it as fine paste using the cold milk..Make a caramel syrup with sugar and a teaspoon of water, keep aside.

Add the grounded rice paste to the milk and stir it continuosuly until it turns bit thick..Add the sugar,caramel syrup to the cooking rice paste.

Meanwhile heat the ghee, keep aside a tablespoon of pineapple chunks,roast the remaining pineaple chunks until they turns golden brown..

Grind this roasted pineapple chunks with some water as a thick paste..Add this pineapple paste and fresh cream to the cooking rice mixture..give a stir..Add the cardamom powder;nutmeg powder to the cooking phirni and put off the stove.

Decorate the pineapple chunks and almond flakes over the phirni, drizzle the caramel syrup..Arrange in fridge for atleast an hour..

Serve & enjoy!
