Phirni is a popular North Indian sweet pudding made with rice, milk and dry fruits. There are a few variations of phirni and this mango phirni is one such variation. Phirni is a must in most North Indian weddings or festive occasions or special celebrations like Diwali as well as for Karwa Chauth festival.

This mango phirni is easy to make. Just a few preparations you need to do like grinding the rice and preparing mango puree and the rest of the method is easy. I used one alphonso mango to make the puree. You can even use canned mango pulp. You can also check this Thai style mango pudding recipe.

Serve mango phirni as a dessert after any North Indian meal.

Ingredients

  • 45 grams rice or ¼ cup basmati rice
  • 315 grams mango or 1 large mango or 1 cup chopped mango or 1 cup mango puree
  • 3 cups full fat milk or 750 ml full fat milk
  • 4 tablespoon sugar or add as per taste

Instructions

preparation

  • Rinse 1/4 cup basmati rice for couple of times in water and then spread it in a plate and let the grains dry. You can also spread it on a small kitchen towel.
  • After the rice grains are dried, then take the rice grains in a grinder jar.
  • Grind till you get a semi fine granular consistency, like that of rava or sooji. Keep aside.
  • When the rice is getting dried, you can peel, chop 1 large mango and add the mango cubes in a blender or grinder.
  • Blend till smooth. Keep the mango pulp aside.
  • Also slice or chop 10 to 12 pistachios and 5 to 6 dried rose petals if using.

  • Take 3 cups full fat milk in a thick bottomed kadai or pan and on a low flame heat it. Do stir at times so that the milk does not scorch from the base.
  • When the milk begins to boil, then add the ground rice granules. Stir very well.
  • Next add 4 tablespoon sugar. Stir well and cook the mixture on a low flame, stirring at intervals.
  • The milk will thicken as the rice gets cooked.
  • Keep on stirring in breaks so that lumps are not formed. Also scrape the sides often and add it to the simmering milk.
  • By the time the rice granules get cooked, the phirni would thicken considerably. At this stage, you have to stir continuously, so that the phirni does not brown or burn from the base.
  • Switch off the flame, when you reach a thick consistency and the rice is cooked.
  • Add 1/2 tablespoon sliced or chopped pistachios, 1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder and 1 teaspoon chopped dried rose petals. You can also add rose water instead of rose petals. Saffron also gives a good flavor, so you can also add a pinch of saffron.
  • Mix well. Keep the pan down. Cover the pan and let the phirni cool at room temperature.
  • Once the phirni has cooled down, it will thicken more. After adding the mango puree, it will again come to a fluid consistency.
  • Add the mango puree and mix very well to a uniform consistency. If you feel the mango pudding mixture is too thick, then you can add 2 to 3 tablespoon of warm milk to it.
  • Now spoon the mango phirni in bowls.
  • Garnish with 1 tablespoon of sliced pistachios or rose petals.
  • Cover the bowls and refrigerate mango phirni for 3 to 4 hours. If in a hurry, then keep the bowls covered in the freezer for 30 to 45 minutes. Then remove and refrigerate before you serve.
  • Serve mango phirni as a dessert.
