Pheni : Thin silky sewiyan Kheer

Pheni or the silky sewiyan is typically found in the market near karwachauth. It's pre-fried in ghee and is sold at the halwai shops in cute round pieces. You put them in boiling milk and switch off the gas and enjoy it after a while as a light kheer. A perfect easy to make dessert. Since its quick to make this is often eaten as a part of morning sargi for Karwachauth. I have always loved it and used to make mum buy loads of it at the time of Karwachauth and relish for months post that once a week. 

As a pleasant surprise I also found them at a Telegu wedding in Bangalore recently. They were served as a mid meal sweet and served with hot badaam milk and a boondi ladoo, so you crush the ladoo for the sweetness and pour the milk on it which cooks it. So interesting to see cultures have similar stuff.
