Mango kheer, a rich mango dessert with milk, reduced and thickened with rice, flavoured with saffron, cardamom and mango puree as main ingredients. For last mango season I tried mango kesari, and this mango kheer is my first try this season. I saw this recipe online in a Tamil newspaper website, as suggested by my relative and just followed it. It turned out to be delicious of course with all these exotic ingredients. Bought few alphonso mangoes from Mustafa, I guess still season has not yet come, it was ripen and yellow but not sweet. Vj always have mango as side dish for sambar sadam and curd rice, this time I thought I will make this mampazha payasam first.
Serve cold with few finely chopped mango on top. Heavenly!
