Creamy Delight: Refreshing Mango Phirni Recipe to Savor the Flavors



  • 1/2 cup basmati rice
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar (adjust to taste)
  • 1 ripe mango, peeled and pureed
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder
  • A pinch of saffron strands
  • Chopped almonds and pistachios for garnish


  1. Rinse the basmati rice under running water until the water runs clear. Soak the rice in water for 30 minutes, then drain.
  2. Grind the soaked rice into a coarse paste using a blender or food processor.
  3. In a heavy-bottomed pan, heat the milk over medium heat until it comes to a boil. Stir occasionally to prevent the milk from sticking
    to the bottom of the pan.
  4. Add the ground rice to the boiling milk, stirring continuously to prevent lumps from forming.
  5. Cook the mixture on low heat, stirring occasionally, until the rice is fully cooked and the mixture thickens to a creamy consistency.
    This may take around 30-40 minutes.
  6. Add sugar to the rice-milk mixture and stir until the sugar is fully dissolved.
  7. Add the mango puree, cardamom powder, and saffron strands. Mix well.
  8. Cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, to allow the flavors to blend together.
  9. Remove the pan from heat and let the phirni cool to room temperature.
  10. Once cooled, pour the phirni into individual serving bowls or a large serving dish. Refrigerate for at least 2-3 hours to allow it to set.
  11. Garnish with chopped almonds and pistachios before serving.
  12. Serve chilled and enjoy the creamy and flavorful Mango Phirni!

You can adjust the sweetness of the phirni by adding more or less sugar, depending on your preference. You can also add a few strands of saffron to warm milk and use it as a garnish on top for a more aromatic touch.
