Orange kheer recipe With step by step photos – oranges and milk…. Do you like this combination?… Some of us won’t like the combination of a citrus fruit with milk…. Its a little weird for me too…. Like having lemons with milk…. Guess what it does to your imagination.

Yet lemons are more tart and sour than oranges. Oranges are sweet and in this season in India we do get sweet oranges. So the combination is not as bad as you think or imagine.

And when oranges are in season, what to do with them… Of course you can eat them directly without the hassle of making anything with them.

But  you can also make something from the oranges which you must have never had in your life. Thats what I did. And inspite of being a little unsure and uncertain, I am glad I made Orange kheer.

It was simply wow… And a thought.. Why I did not make this earlier? and trust me no bad side effects on the stomach 😉

I have adapted this orange kheer recipe from a small veg pocket book I have. They have a kheer section in it, which strangely has uncommon kheer recipes and orange kheer is one amongst them.

I would also like to wish belated Lohri and Makar Sankranti to all of you. How much ever I love sweets and wanna make them at home for festive occasions, I just do not get the time to do so.

How to make orange kheer recipe

I have used 500 ml of milk for the recipe. You can double up the quantity if you want. You could use any sweet oranges for the recipe, Indian as well as imported oranges.

1: peel the oranges. Remove the pith. Chop the oranges finely. Whilst chopping the oranges, remove the seeds also.

  1. Hi
    I like your page and recipes but as a Bengali I must tell you that this is not a Bengali recipe at all . If you would have made only payesh or kheer then it was ok but definitely not orange kheer.please don’t misguide ppl.

    1. monalisa, this kheer is known as komola kheer or komola payesh in bengali language. you may not be aware, but it is one of the recipes that come from bengal. this recipe is adapted from a cookbook. also i have a couple of bengali cook books and they have this orange kheer recipe mentioned in them.

      i am not misguiding people. if it is a bengali recipe, then i have to mention it is a bengali recipe. sometimes we ourselves are not aware of many recipes from our own cuisine just because they are not made in our homes. eg i am a half goan. some recipes were not made in my home and later in my teens i came to know that a few recipes like shakuti or khatkhate are actually goan recipes. if you look through bengali cookbooks or even on internet, you will find orange kheer mentioned as a bengali recipe.
