Meanwhile, milk is heated in a pan and brought to a boil. The ground rice paste is added to the milk and cooked on low heat, stirring continuously to avoid lumps. As the mixture thickens, sugar, cardamom powder, and saffron strands are added for flavor and aroma.

Expert Tips

Choose ripe and flavorful mangoes: Select mangoes that are ripe, sweet, and aromatic. The quality and flavor of the mangoes will greatly enhance the taste of your mango phirni.

Soak rice for the right consistency: Soak the basmati rice for a few hours to ensure it softens and grinds easily. This will help achieve a smooth and creamy texture in your phirni.

Use full-fat milk: Opt for full-fat milk to make your mango phirni. The richness of the milk will contribute to the creamy and luscious texture of the dessert.

Cook on low heat and stir continuously: When cooking the phirni mixture, ensure you use low heat and stir continuously. This will prevent the mixture from sticking to the bottom of the pan and forming lumps.

Incorporate mango pulp at the right stage: Add the mango pulp to the phirni mixture after it has thickened to the desired consistency. This will preserve the fresh mango flavor and prevent it from overpowering the other flavors.

Adjust sweetness and flavors: Taste the phirni mixture before adding the mango pulp and adjust the sweetness according to your preference. You can also adjust the amount of cardamom powder and saffron strands to suit your taste.

Garnish with nuts and mango slices: Garnish your mango phirni with chopped nuts like pistachios or almonds for added texture and crunch. You can also decorate the top with thin slices of mango for an appealing presentation.

Chill thoroughly before serving: After pouring the phirni into serving bowls or glasses, allow it to cool at room temperature and then refrigerate for a few hours. This will help the phirni set properly and develop a chilled and creamy consistency.

  • Mango phirni needs to be thoroughly chilled and set in the refrigerator to achieve the right texture. Allow it to cool at room temperature before placing it in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight for best results
