Fereni

fereni-recipe-575x1024
Fereni is a Persian pudding dessert that people make for various occasions. For some events Fereni is served cold as a dessert, while at other times it is served warm for someone who is feeling under the weather or sick. I personally prefer having it warm.

FYI trying to decorate with grounded up pistachio powder is very difficult. Especially because it sticks to your fingers and doesn’t do what you want it to do. :)

Ingredients ( 1 medium bowl):
Milk –1 liter (roughly 4 cups)
Rice Flour — 2 tablespoons
Sugar — 8 tablespoons
Rose Water — 2-4 tablespoons
Pistachios — desired amount for decoration

Direction:
In a large pot pour in your milk. Note: do not turn the stove top burner on at this time.

Gradually add the rice flour into the pot and stir into the milk.

At this time you can turn the burner on and leave it on a medium low temperature.
Begin adding the sugar to the pot and stir in with the milk and rice flour.

Finally, add the rose water and stir all the ingredients. Make sure you continually stir the ingredients so that as the Fereni thickens it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot.

You will need to continually stir until the Fereni thickens a bit. Note: depending on the burner temperature (and possibly your stove) it will take 30 – 45 minutes of stirring before the Fereni is ready to be poured into a serving (or various serving) dishes.

After you have poured the Fereni into a serving dish you can finely grind up the pistachios to decorate your dish. Allow the Fereni to cool down a bit before decorating with the ground pistachio powder.

Serve warm or cold. If serving it cold you will need to refrigerate the Fereni after it cools down.
