  1. Hi Mrs Manjula,
    I am a very big fan of your recipes more because you make it look very simple with easy to follow instructions. I would like to try your peach phirni recipe in a weeks time. When you say the rice should be ground to a fine texture, should it be in the consistency of coarse sooji?

      1. This was delicious plain. I made it the other day and just left out the peaches and cornstarch. Also I added a touch of vanilla extract just like in the rice puddings I usually make. However, I’d like to have it without next time so it tastes not so much like the same old one I make 😀 And instead of soaking my rice, I just ground my rice to a powder in my dry Vita Mix container and added it to my almond milk and cooked it all together. Thanks for all you do, Manjula!

  2. The recipe below the video calls for 1/3 cup sugar, while you mention 3/4 cup sugar in the video. Though it does look like you have used 3/4 cup sugar, please let me know for sure so that when I make the dish it does not end up being too sweet or less. Thanks.
