Mango phirni is decadent mango dessert which is ideal for the summer season.
Phirni is a very popular Indian dessert. It is basically a rice pudding made with milk and coarse rice paste. Mango phirni is a variation of the original dish. In this, mango puree is added to the milk and rice mixture. Then it is poured into small earthen clay pots and garnished with chopped nuts or mango.
This Indian dessert has a creamy yet grainy texture. It is mildly sweet and tastes incredible when served chilled. It is a very flavourful dish and if you are looking for an eggless dessert option, then give this a try.
Rinse the rice and soak in water for an hour. Drain and grind with water to a semi-fine or grainy paste. Keep it aside.
In a heavy-bottomed or non-stick pan, heat milk and bring it to a boil. Simmer till it reduces to 3/4th of its original quantity.
Lower the flame and gradually stir in the rice paste. Keep on stirring till it blends well into the milk and starts to thicken.
Add sugar and keep on stirring until it dissolves. Make sure there are no lumps.
Turn the heat off and allow it to come to room temperature. Then add mango puree and mix well.
Add mango essence and mix well.
Pour the mango phirni into the serving bowls and garnish with chopped dry fruits or mango. Refrigerate for an hour and then serve.
As this dessert is not extremely sweet, so adjust the amount of sugar according to the sweetness of the mangoes.
Mango essence is optional. You can definitely skip this ingredient.
