Firni is a traditional Afghan milk custard, smooth and delicately spiced with cardamom. Although it can be made for all kinds of gatherings, it’s always prepared as part of the bridal table dessert spread. Once the custard is set, it can be layered with all sorts of toppings, including maghoot, fruit compotes and nuts; this recipe uses slivered pistachios and rose petals.
