Phirni is a thick creamy traditional Indian rice pudding made from coarsely grinned rice cooked in milk & flavored with cardamom, saffron along with sugar and nuts. We can make variety of flavors as per choice like mango, strawberry, poppy seeds, apple or thandai.
Mango phirni is easy to make it's delicious .
Soak the saffron in 2 tbsp. of warm milk.
Rinse the rice and soak for 10 minutes then coarsely grind into mixer grinder.
Boil the milk in a heavy bottomed pan and after a boil reduce the heat and add rice paste along with rice flour.
Stir very well and lower the heat and cook the mixture while stirring at intervals so that lumps are not formed .
Cook till the mixture gets thickened. Add sugar, nuts, saffron and cardamom powder mix it well and Cook again for 5 minutes.
Switch off the gas. Once the phirni cools down, add mango puree and mix well. If you feel phirni is too thick you can add 2 tbsp. of warm milk.
