Mango phirni

Ingredients required
Rice 100 gm (raw)
Ripe Mango 2-3 nos. (1 cup pulp)
Full fat milk 1 litre
Sugar 100 gm or as per taste
Elaichi powder a pinch
Almonds (chopped) 1 tbsp
Cashew nuts (chopped) 1 tbsp
Pistachios (chopped) 1 tbsp
Salt a pinch
For garnish
Ripe mango slices
Fresh mint sprigs

How to make Mango Phirni:
Wash the rice a couple of times. Soak the rice in water for 45 minutes, after soaking, drain the water and air dry the soaked rice.
Cut the mangoes and remove the flesh and transfer them to the grinding jar to make a puree.
Once the rice is completely dried, transfer to a mixer grinder and grind to a coarse texture, make sure not to grind too much. Further, soak the grounded rice in milk, take 200 ml milk from the 1 litre, and keep the remaining 800 ml milk for making the phirni.
Set a heavy bottom vessel on medium heat, add the remaining 800 ml of full-fat milk, stir and bring to a light simmer.
Once the milk is boiled, add the milk-soaked rice, make sure to stir while adding the rice, and cook for 10 minutes on medium flame while stirring in short intervals. Scrap off the sides while cooking. Make sure to stir continuously throughout the cooking process.
Once the phirni starts to thicken, lower the flame and stir continuously, cook until the rice grains are cooked.
Once the phirni is thickened, add the mango puree, and chopped nuts and stir well.
Taste for the sweetness and add the sugar accordingly, add a pinch of elaichi powder, stir and cook on medium-low flame while stirring for another 5-7 minutes. The consistency of the phirni should be thick.
Finish with a pinch of salt and stir well.
Transfer immediately in a sakora/kullhad to set, make sure the phirni is warm enough while setting in the sakora/kullhad.
Set in the fridge for a minimum of 3-4 hours or overnight. Once set, remove and serve chilled with some mango pieces as a garnish and a few fresh mint leaves.
