I wanted to have a dessert in form of a refreshing drink, so I thought of making Phirni- it’s a dessert that can be served as a drink. I used mangoes to give it a twist and add some colour. For all those who love kheer and aam ras then this drink is for you.
3 cups milk
½ mango pulp (fresh or canned)
4-5 tbsp sugar (adjust according to mangoes’ sweetness)
8-10 cardamom/ilaychi crushed
10-15 Almonds, cashews and pistachios –sliced
½ cup rice
Soak rice in cup of milk for an hour and then blend in the mixer to make coarse paste
Boil 2 cups of milk on slow flame, when bubbles appear add in the rice mixture and keep stirring.
When the milk starts getting thick add sugar and cardamom.
Keep stirring till thick and rice is cooked.
Take off the flame and add mango pulp and mix.
Decorate with chopped nuts.
