This is what you’ll need

Full Cream Milk: 3/4 cup
Alphonso or Kesar mango: 1 (ripe)
Basmati Rice: 3 tbsp
Condensed Milk:1/3 cup
Cardamom powder: 1/2tsp
Mango pieces/ almond or pistachio slivers: To garnish
Let’s get cooking
1. Peel, cut the mango into pieces and grind it to a smooth puree. Reserve few mango pieces for garnish.
2. Soak basmati rice in water for half an hour. Drain the rice and grind to a coarse paste. Do not grind it very smooth a coarse paste works best in giving a nice texture to the dessert.
3. Heat the milk in a thick bottomed pan, simmer when it comes to a boil.  Slowly add the rice mixture and stir continuously until it forms a thick mixture. It takes approximately 8-10 mins. Stir the mixture constantly, to avoid lumps from forming. Add the condensed milk and continue cooking for another few minutes. Check the sweetness of the mixture, if you want more sweetness adjust it by adding more sugar or condensed milk at this stage.
4. Add cardamom powder and mix well. Once the mixture is thick turn off the stove.
5. Divide the mixture into two parts and add mango puree (reserve some mango puree) to one portion and mix it nicely.
6. Take 5-6 medium sized glasses or glass bowls and start layering. First add a tbsp of mango puree in all the bowls.Then add 2 ladles(6-7 tbsp) of white phirni in all the bowls. Once you finish filling the mixture in all the bowls,start with the bowl which you poured first and gently add 2 ladles of mango phirni taking care that the mixture will not mix up with the white portion as we want the layers to be seen separately.
7. Garnish with chopped mangoes,slivered/flaked almonds,pistachios.
8. Allow them to cool and keep in refrigerator for 3-4 hrs and serve chilled.
