First of all I would like to wish Eid Mubarik to everyone, wish everyone a lovely holiday. Eid is a time we make special foods, visit our relatives and enjoy lot. Half of Maldives population lives in capital Male' so on Eid holidays most of the people living in Male' will leave to the islands. In the islands Eid is much celebrated than in the capital. So many kinds of sweets, savories will be made and people who visit from Male to the islands will be invited for tea, lunch or dinner throughout the holidays. Eid holidays lasts about ten to fifteen days.
Pirini is a very delicious dessert made on special occasions like Eids or weddings. So I hope this recipe will satisfy who are looking for a dessert to make on Eid.
1cup Bamati rice
13/4cup condensed milk
2tbs rose water
6tbs cinnamon, cardamom powder
Wash rice and dry in the sun. If you want make for noon morning you wash and leave in sun to dry.
In a sauce pan add rice powder and sugar stir constantly on very low flame for about 10 minutes. Don’t let the color of rice change, if it changes then the heat is much and the rice cannot be used. So don’t take your eyes off.
Sprinkle cinnamon and cardamom powder on top serve hot or cold ………….......…. enjoy!
