I initially made it or the alphabet ‘O’ but later had to change it for K as my dish for K was fitting in for U.You all know how many logic we use to make a blog post fit in the suitable theme.The recipe for this sinful dessert was adapted from Divine Taste and you may read more about this kheer at Sandeepa’ s space too. Orange is called Kamlalebu in Bengali and it is a very common almost effortless dessert that you all might want to try.
The day was Mr.H’s birthday when I made this Orange Kheer along with Pav Bhaji and Tuxedo cake.This was very unusual combination.He was surprised to know that even for his birthday I was thinking for the “blog”.That’s what we food bloggers do na we try to take advantage from every occasion we cook something for;) When I served this Kheer,the family wasn’t ready to try it thinking how milk would taste with oranges because they never have had this Kheer before.I requested them okay,just try it one spoon and if you won’t like then don’t eat.And then there was one spoon followed until last spoon and were demands to serve more.Even I had to bribe the Birthday Man with one more bowl in exchange of posing for my picture.
