it looks good but i didn`t understand what you meant by `groundrice`.
do we have to grind this rice a bit in mixer grinder because in firni we usually doesn`t see any flakes of rice.

hi Deepali,

In firni grind rice are used. U can use grinder to grind the rice to powder form otherwise its kheer not firni.
In above recipe if Khoya is added it will be a lot more tasty.
When kheer is ready and pan is removed from heat just add 1or 2 table spoon of khoya and mix well.

Actually, it works much better if you use the rice flour. If rice flour is not available, then the rice needs to be ground to the point where they are like flour or wet rice is like a smooth paste.
