GIL-E-FIRDAUS also commonly known as Kesar Firni is a pudding made by grounded rice, lots of dry fruits and saffron. It’s thick as compared to the normal Rice Kheer, garnished with lots of dry nuts and rose petals, it is served chilled in various festivals and special occasions.
The Firni is rich, creamy, rose scented and loaded with lots of chopped dry nuts. In my house Firni is preferred more than rice keer.
