Kamala Kheer (Orange Kheer)

When I decided to make recipes with orange for this theme I drought 12 oranges from the market. I thought they will be sweet but no they are really very sour and I can not eat them as it is. Then I thought of making pulihora and these sour oranges worked so very well for pulihora. Then my second recipe is a kheer with oranges. I was little scare to make kheer with this sour oranges. But when I peal the oranges surprisingly they are really very sweet and my kheer turned out really so delicious so let's check the recipe..
orange kheer INGREDIENTS:---
Milk  ----   1 ltr
Orange segments  ---  1 cup
Orange zest  ----  1 tab sp
Rice flour  or corn flour  ---  2 tab sp
Milk   ----   1 tab sp  to mix the flour
Cardamom powder  ---   1 tea sp
Sugar   ----   4 tab sp or according to your taste
METHOD:---
1. Boil the milk in a wide pan for 20 minutes, while stirring continuously and scraping the sides of the pan.
3. Mix 1 tab sp milk with rice flour mix well and add this mixture to the boiling milk and cook for five more minutes, while stirring continuously.
4. Add sugar, cardamom powder mix well and cook in a medium heat for 2 more minutes and switch off the heat, let it cool completely.
5. Once the milk mixture is completely cooled then add orange segments and orange zest mix well.
Keep this orange kheer in the fridge to cool and serve chilled.
Note:--
1. I used full cream milk you can substitute wit low fat milk
2. Using rice flour or corn flour to give the kheer thick texture
And orange zest will give a extra orange flavor to the kheer.
3. I gave 4 tab sp of sugar in the recipe you can substitute with sugar substitute or you can just skip the sugar, that also will taste great.
And one more thing is add orange segments after cool the milk mixture other wise milk will curdle so don't add orange segments when milk is hot.

Kheer looks delicious. I am sure it tasted good. I once tried orange basundi with canned oranges and that was yum and assuming the same with this kheer.

I had tried this earlier and it was very yummy. Love the addition of flour to thicken it, makes it guilt free. I recall adding condensed milk.
