Everyday is a Mango-nificient!!
Mango is everyone’s favorite, mine too. That’s the very big reason my page is filled with Mango Recipes. Till the end of this Summer, I will share at least ten more recipes of Mango. If I have to choose any fruit to make desserts, Mango always comes in the first place. Trust me, this Mango flavored phirni is so delicious that it will be swiped clean in one go. Do give this recipe a try once, and I can bet you will love every single bite of it.
The Phirni blends with the freshness of Mango and presents us with a flavorful summer dessert.
The ingredients are very simple. All you will need Milk, Kheer Rice or Basmati Rice, ghee, Mangoes, Cardamom Powder, Saffron, Sugar, Dry ruits like Cashew Nuts, Pistachios, Almonds to garnish the Phirni. You can add chopped Mango cubes too to garnish the Phirni.
You can use Regular Milk too, but Full-Fat Milk is best for making any kind of Phirnis.
Traditionally, Phirni is served in earthen clay bowls. The reason is earthen bowls squeezes the moisture away from the phirni, resulting in a creamy, mushy texture. And the texture comes from grounding soaked rice into a coarse paste. The phirni tastes amazing if it is served chilled, so freeze the phirni for at least 2 hrs before serving. Also, this will help infusion of flavors.
Can Stored Mango Pulp be used?
Yes, you can use stored Mango pulp too. But make sure, the pulp is of Kesar Aam. Otherwise, fibrous Mangoes ruins the creamy texture.
Alphonso Mangoes are best too. But, if you are in Mango Season, use fresh Mangoes. Because nothing tastes like fresh Mangoes.
Also, chose Ripe Mangoes to make this Phirni.
