ABOUT Kheer Komola / Orange Kheer (Milk Pudding with Orange) RECIPE

This is a traditional winter delicacy and is very popular among Bengalis. In my family, it is kind of must during Makar Sankranti. The creamy, concentrated and flavourful milk with a dash of freshly peeled orange makes it truly heavenly. This year, I have started my pre-Sankranti preparation with Kheer Komola and I am loving every bit of it.
