Mango (Aam/Mampazha) Phirni

Mango_Aam_Mampazha_Phirni_1 Phirni is a popular desert of north India. It tastes almost like kheer or paal payasam. It is a little thick, creamy rice pudding. This is prepared in many flavors by adding nuts, dry fruits or fresh fruits. It is preserved and served in earthen pots. I love this dessert for its simplicity.


  • Full cream milk – 1 litre
  • Sugar – ½ cup (adjust as per sweetness of mango)
  • Rice rava – ½ cup (here is How to Prepare Rice Rava?)
  • Ripe mango cut and scooped – 2 no
  • Cardamom – few
  • Saffron strands – few
  • Almond and pistachio chopped – 1 table spoon each for garnishing

  • Powder cardamom and keep; puree the scooped mango in a blender and keep; soak saffron in 1 table spoon of warm milk.

  • Boil milk in a wide pan; add rice rava, cook till the milk is reduced to half in volume and rava is cooked; add sugar, dissolved saffron and cook for few more minutes.
