Kiwi, as most of us know is an exotic fruit with a brilliant green colour and unique taste, but most us here don’t know that this fruit is a chef’s delight. Whenever it comes to kiwi, it is used in garnishing and many more things but there is a trick to it when we use it with dairy products, it needs to be protected so that it doesn’t get that metallic taste. No worries here, just follow our steps properly and use the ingredients in same proportion and it will be cooked without much effort. An earthen pot is a perfect vessel to set this dessert, as the porous surface of the pot will absorb water leaving a thick & creamy Phirni behind.

Tip: You could replace the kiwi with any other fruit of your choice. Apple, banana, strawberries, raspberries and mango goes well with this dessert.

So enjoy this delicious and healthy India dessert as your dinner offering or a lovely Christmas treat.
