Fereni - A Persian Dessert

Fereni is a creamy and delicious Persian dessert which is made using rice flour , milk and rosewater as main ingredients. The Rosewater gives the intense flavor to the dessert and it is normally garnished with Pistachios . The dessert could be served either warm or cold . I personally like to be on a warm side. But Fereni is best when it is served chill . 

For this month's challenge on International Food Challenge  , +Savitha Ganesan was the host . She had chosen Persian Cuisine. Persian cuisine is really similar to Indian cooking . They widely use Rice , Turmeric and Saffron . Among  suggested recipes from savitha's end , i chose Fereni which was little easy . Thank you +Saraswathi Tharagaram for the lovely group challenge .

Ingredients for this desserts are easily available . Still you can substitute with the ingredients too as i did.


Rice Flour - 1 1/2 TBSP
Whole Milk - 1 1/2 Cup
Rose Water - 1 1/4 TBSP
Sugar - 2 TBSP

Cashew and Almonds - For Garnishing


- In a bowl , combine milk , sugar and rice flour . Mix well using a Whisk .
- The mixture should be lump free .
- Place the bowl in the stove on medium heat and keep it whisking to make sure there is no lumps forming.
-  Mixture will thicken in no time , so keep an eye on it.
- When the mixture is getting thicker add the rose water and allow it to get little more thicker.
- The pudding must be jelly like consistency .
- Pour it in the serving bowls . Garnish it with Nuts .
- Serve it warm or cold .

  5. Such an intriguing dessert - almost like a pudding. I love how simple the ingredient list is and no eggs required!

  6. reading second post in a row for Fereni and now am drooling. it looks yummy and inviting

  7. Hmmm, this one has me curious. I've used the rice flour to make Mochi, which has almost a marshmallow texture to it. I'm thinking this has more liquid, making it closer to a pudding texture. I'm not a huge fan of rose water (at least not in food), but this would be easily adaptable to other flavors. Thanks! :) [#TastyTuesdays]
