Couscous Firni

010

My husband sometimes get crazy while doing grocery !! He just keep going buying without thinking quantity and sometimes quality . That’s the reason I never let him do the grocery alone !!! Few weeks ago he bought 2 large 27 oz jar of instant couscous !! He saved $2 buying these 2 packs and with a big smile of victory (!!) he told me ” isn’t it a nice deal ??”.. :O Such a fat bargain made in a fluke !!

Few days back , I made firni with this couscous , turned out great . You can do it without any hassle and in no time . I’m calling it firni as the texture is as same as the firni . If you want to know the difference between firni , kheer and payash , please click the link below

Ingredients:

Part A :

3/4 th cup of instant couscous
3/4 th cup milk
1 tea spoon butter
A tiny pinch of salt

Part B:

3 and 1/2 cup milk
1/4 th cup powder milk
1/2 cup – 3/4 th cup sugar ( according to taste)
3/4 green cardamoms
1 little stick of cinnamon
1 bayleaf
Saffron , soaked in little milk
A tiny pinch of saffron/ zafrani food color ( optional)
Rose water
Chopped nuts ( almond , pistachio) and raisins

Procedure:

Part A:

1. Boil the 3/4 th cup of milk with tiny pinch of salt and butter . Turn off the stove .

2. Add the couscous , mix and cover the lid . After 10 minutes the couscous will absorb the milk . Now fluff it up with a fork . Set it aside.

Part B:

1. Mix powder milk to the regular full fat milk and boil it with the cardamoms , cinnamon and bay leaf . Reduce the milk a bit .

2. Add the couscous and stir until it is well incorporated in the milk without having any lump . Cook a little more , like 10 minutes in a medium low heat, stirring occassioanly .

3. Add the sugar , cook another 5-7 minutes , stirring continuously . At this stage you may add some chopped nuts and raisins . Sprinkle some rose water. Turn off the stove . Don’t thicken the firni too much as it tends to thicken after cooling down .

4. Pour in a serving bowl and garnish with chopped nuts and raisins .
