ORANGE KHEER

3

Stepwise pictorial recipe of Orange Kheer.

Recipes which sound uncommon and made with awkward combinations always raise a question whether it will taste good and will it be easy to cook?

Orange Kheer also falls in the same category as Orange is a citrus fruit and it’s combination with milk surely destroys the milk. BUT ..what is otherwise not good is not just good but more than excellent in case of this recipe. 

Highly easy to make with the very basic ingredients and that too in 10-12 minutes, the only tough part is to eat just one bowl. ☺

You can also make it during fasts.

Today there are 2 major reasons for presenting this dessert. ONE, this is the first Navratra of Goddess Durga which is being celebrated across India and TWO, this is the 100th post in our blog.

So let’s begin…

NOTES

*Make sure that the oranges you are going to use are sweet. Sour oranges will spoil the taste of kheer.

** The purpose of arrowroot flour is just to shorten the time of coming milk to half. If you don’t have arrowroot flour, no issues. Let milk reduce to half on its own terms.

In case you are not observing fast, you can also use cornflour in place of arrowroot flour.

*** Zest is prepared by scraping or cutting from the outer, orange coloured skin of orange. It is used to add flavor to foods.

To make orange zest, grate the outer skin of the orange peel. Be careful as you should only grate the upper orange coloured layer of the orange peel and not the white inner portion of orange peel.

***** Don’t add orange into milk unless milk is completely cool otherwise milk will curdle.

*****This kheer tastes best only if served chilled.
