This komola kheer l orange pudding was made to use up the glut of oranges lying on the kitchen counter. We were definitely a bit enthusiastic with the purchase; with the kids away at university, there were too many just for the two of us.


So, some of the oranges went towards the making of this komola kheer. In other words, when life gives you too many oranges (komola), make kheer ( milk based pudding).

Kheer?

Kheer is a slow cooked dessert usually made with milk, rice and sugar. Sometimes, the rice in the kheer is substituted with other ingredients; in this case, with oranges. It is a delicious milk based dessert with fresh orange segments and flavoured with cardamom and saffron. With oranges in season right now, it’s the perfect time to whip up this dessert.


A few pointers below-

Slow cooking-

This is not a one minute wonder dessert. As mentioned before it involves slow cooking, so you’ve got to be patient. It is important to cook the milk to the desired consistency. If you are not keen to stand and stir for a substantial amount of time, perhaps do so while cooking a meal. Reduce the milk on one of the burners, while cooking your meal in the others. By the time your meal is cooked, the milk will be ready.


Sweetness-

This dessert was not overtly sweet. I used demerara sugar as that was what I had; you can use other sugars. Also, the sweetness of the dessert was just right for us; feel free to adjust the sweetness to your liking.

Cooling-

It is important for the reduced milk mixture to cool down completely before adding the oranges. This will prevent the milk from curdling.
