Pheni Kheer | Karwa Chauth Fenia | Pheni ki Kheer Recipe | Sargi Special Pheni Kheer


Pheni Kheer

Pheni kheer is a must item in the Karwa Chauth Sargi thali or for any special occasion at my home or I usually make it for my big sweet tooth. 😁😁 It is prepared with milk, mild sweet and loaded with dry fruits. It is very light in taste, so easy to make and absolutely delicious dessert that you can served with your everyday meals.

Generally we get readymade Pheni disks in the sweet shops during the time of Karwa Chauth. It is a tradition to have Pheni on Karwa Chauth day along with other sargi items. 

At my In-laws place this Pheni kheer is made during saawan month and can be served as a sweet dish after heavy meals.

What is Karwa Chauth and their significance behind the festival?

Karwa Chauth is a festival celebrated by Hindu women from the Northern and Western India on the fourth day after Purnima (a full moon) in the month of Kartika. On Karwa Chauth, married women, especially in North India, observe fast from sunrise to moonrise for the safety and longevity of their husbands.

Being an Indian , I loved Indian traditions so much and their values behind the festivals are so beautiful and meaningful. I'll share you what we do during karwa chauth in details in other post but for now in short - 

we wake up early in the morning like around 4 a.m, make some delicious food for ourselves which include pheni ki kheer, fruits (like apple/coconut), some sweet like gulab jamun or rasgulla, a glass of water, tea/coffee, dry fruits, any stuffed paratha with curd. I know its sounds so funny that how can we eat this whole some meal in early morning😉 here's my sargi thali in below picture

  1. I love this quick and easy traditional feni kheer. We used to get these fenis around Ramzan time in the stores. The dessert comes out soft and melt in the mouth with these

  2. Soothing and comforting platter here with this delicious pheni kheer. I have only tried pheni once, I am going to try it as soon as I find some in my Indian grocer.

  3. The traditional context of Pheni Kheer recipe post is an interesting one. I would like to try this whenever I visit my hometown. Making kheer with pheni is quick one and it turns out luscious and creamy as well. Nice post!
