This is a selection of Indian sweets at Eatopia in India Habitat Centre (IHC). I don't have a sweet tooth myself, but many of my friends love a good cup of rabri or kheer. This here is firni and I searched the net to find the easiest recipe for you to try making this at home. As you will notice, the dish is served in earthen pots. There are some Indian treats that taste better in earthen pots so try and have then the way prescribed here... It will help you savour the authentic taste.
