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!
