Mangoes have arrived in the market, and the summer season has set in this part of the world.

The reason to make this mithai a little ahead of mango season was to treat my younger one cleared his Final CA exam with flying colours.

Few days ago while I was chatting with dear friend Neesha, who is a foodie girl, sent me beautiful pics of Mango mithai made by her. I immediately fell in love with texture and colour of the mithai.

So I requested her to share the recipe and she patiently penned down with useful tips and tricks and sent it to me. Thank you Neesha dear. We all relished it.

Mango mithai/barfi/burfi/indian milk fudge with mango Ingredients list

You need very basic ingredients to make this mango burfi recipe. Actual recipe calls for Khoya/Mawa, which being an important ingredient, since it forms the base of this fudge.

Here in this recipe, we will not use any khoya/mawa but using alum in the milk, we will make soft paneer kind of base, best known as Halwai style.

In addition to that, you will need mangoes, sugar, condensed milk, ghee and nutmeg powder and saffron. I’ve made this mango burfi with fresh Alphanso mango puree.

To make mango puree blend the scooped mango pieces to a smooth paste, and strain it through a sieve to get rid of the fibres.

Instructions to make Mango Mithai Recipe | Mango barfi | Mango burfi

 

We begin with making powder of the Alum(fitkari) crystals in a mortar and pestle. Pound it to make powder and keep aside.

In a wide pan add milk and bring it to a boil. Sprinkle alum powder evenly all over it and give a nice stir. Keep stirring constantly.

This will make milk attain a grainy texture. A perfect mithai must be soft and should have a grainy consistency.

After you notice that 80% of milk is turned into grainy texture, add saffron milk, condensed milk, sugar and mango pulp one by one.

Stir it continuously, till everything comes together like a mass and starts to leave the sides of pan.

After that add a table spoon of ghee to give mithai a nice glossy finish. Finish with nutmeg powder.

Stir it to combine well. Taste the mithai and adjust the sweetness accordingly.

Grease a tin with some Ghee and transfer the mithai mixture into it.

Garnish it with slivered pistachios. Allow it to come to room temperature and cut into pieces.

Serve and enjoy with your family.

For clicking pics, I have changed the mold and set the mithai into pie tin.

    Hi Lata, my mango loving husband and mother in law will definitely enjoy this mithai. I am in the US and not able to find alum, is there a way to substitute that. Thanks

      Hi Savita. Yes, You can use 2-tsp lemon juice diluted in 1 tsp water instead of Alum. This will make Milk attain a grainy consistency.
