Had some guests at home, and served this Orange milk pudding as dessert. This is quite a traditional recipe where milk is thickened over low heat and then sugar is mixed to it. When it is cold, orange segments are added to it carefully. The result is a brilliant and you can enjoy it the Bengali way with some luchi and Aloor dom.
Though due to paucity of time, I have used condensed milk along with regular milk and added just 2-3 spoonful of sugar. It also depends on how sweet your oranges are. You have to be very careful, if the orange is sour, the kheer will curdle leaving you disheartened.
- Milk – 500 ml ( Preferably whole milk)
- Condensed Milk – 1 Can
- Sugar – As required
- Oranges – 4, segmented
- Ghee – 1 tsp
In a large Kadai, add the milk and condensed milk and mix well. Now put the kadai on gas and reduce the flame to the minimum. Add the spoonful of ghee too.
Boil the milk continuously for 30 minutes with a stiring here and there so that it doesnot stick to the bottom of the pan. You will notice that the milk is getting thickened. When it is almost done, add the sugar, if required. Stir again.
Remove from it. Cool it completely.
When the milk is getting thickened, carefully remove the pulps of the oranges discarding the seeds, piths etc. Keep it refrigerated.
Place the kheer on the serving bowl, spoon the orange pulp onto it and serve immediately. Yum !!!!
