3 tbsp rice
1 litre milk
1 cup mango puree
6 tbsp sugar
9-10 drops mango essence
Chopped almonds, cashew and mango for garnish

In a heavy bottomed 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 till it dissolves. Make sure there are no lumps.
