Gulkand Phirni Recipe – Rose Preserve Rice Pudding Recipe with step wise pictures.
Delicious creamy gulkand phirni which has tons of rose flavour. It just perfumes through out the phirni and makes it more delicious.
Gulkand is hubby’s favorite, it is very recently i discovered it. He loves everything rose flavoured. I have never tried gulkand before, it is very recently i tried a gulkand flavoured kulfi and fell in love with it. That inspired me to try out few recipes using that. I bought a packet of gulkand immediately and made this. It was delicious, i am planning to make few more recipes as well.
For those who are new to gulkand, it is nothing but rose preserves or rose jam.
It has many health benefits in them as well.
1)It improves digestion.
2)Improves memory & eye sight. Very good for kids.
3)Improves skin tone.
4)Best during summer, cools body.
5)Anti bacterial, Anti-inflammatory, Cardio-tonic, Anti oxidant.
6)Reduces heart burn.
7)When mixed with warm milk and had before bed time, it helps in improving sleep.
