Mango Phirni

Mango Phirni is a sweet prepared by mixing aamras and Phirni. You can read Phirni's recipe here.
Today I will be sharing two variations of Mango phirni. In the first method, you can serve phirni and aamras in layers as shown in the image below.


You can be creative here by adding dry fruits in the layers or by adding something green like... fennel seeds. I would love to see your creativity. So, don't forget to share your Phirni pictures and your experience with me in the comment section below.

The second method is by mixing aamras and phirni. It is awesome in both the ways. Remember that you don't need to cook once you have added mango pulp and phirni otherwise the milk will curdle.
This is how it will look.


Ingredients:

For Aamras:

Mangoes - 3-4
Sugar / Jaggery - 2 Tbsp or to taste
Cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp

For Phirni:

Milk (Full Fat) - 1 litre
Rice - 2 tbsp
Sugar - to taste (Optional)
Jaggery - 3tbsp
Cardamom Powder - 1/4 tsp
Dry Fruits:
Dates - 3-4
Raisins - 3-4
Almonds - 3-4
Cashews - 3-4
Pistachios - 3-4

Method:

For Aamras:
  • In a blender add chopped mango pieces and sugar. Blend it. 
  • Mix Cardamom powder.
  • Aamras is ready. Keep it aside.

For Phirni:
  • Soak rice for 2-3 hours.
  • Grind it into a smooth paste.
  • Boil milk. Once it is boiled keep it on low flame.
  • Add Rice paste.
  • Keep on stirring it occasionally.
  • Stir it more frequently when it starts becoming thick.
  • Add jaggery and cardamom powder after about 30 mins. 
  • Add finely chopped dry fruits and keep on stirring it. Keep some Dry fruits aside for garnishing.
  • When you think it has reached desired thickness then you can turn off the stove. It will take approx 45 mins to 1 hour 15 minutes. It depends on how thick you want it to be.
  • Phirni is served chilled. So keep it in the refrigerator for some time.
  • If you want to serve like the first image then do the layerings with phirni and aamras. You can do slant partition also as phirni's consistency will be so thick.
  • For mango phirni like in the second image, Mix mango pulp and Phirni and garnish with dry fruits.
  •  Mango Phirni is ready!!!
