second step

Then mix the ingredients slowly, so there are no lumps in the milk and continue to stir; reduce the heat until the milk boils. You must constantly stir the ingredients so that they do not stick to the bottom of the pot until they become thick.

third step

After the pudding Rice has thickened( be careful not to harden it too much because it will become a little harder when the Ferni cools down), take the pot off the heat and set aside, but continue to stir. For this reason, we continue to stir because the pudding rice is still hot and will sink if left.

fourth step

You can have a Two-color Ferni. For this work, pour half of the rice pudding into a bowl, add saffron and mix well. After the Ferni cools down, you can first pour the white rice pudding into a bowl and then pour the colored. Depending on your taste, you can serve this favorite dessert hot or cold.
