KamlaLebur Kheer / Kamla Kheer


The title kamlalebur kheer itself sounds so fancy. How does one describe it? Sinful, decadent and rich. Or "orange kheer" from West Bengal to put it in simple terms. The idea of sweet, succulent orange segments dunked in chilled, thick, creamy milk itself is mouth watering. This recipe do not need many ingredients and also the process is a simple one. It is a perfect dessert when you have company, especially during summer. I noticed it for the first time at Sharmi's blog and then at Sandeepa's and was bowled over. I could not put it together until now though planned it several times earlier. We thoroughly enjoyed it and I thought of sharing it.

Ingredients for 3 servings:
2 cups milk
7 oz / 200 gm condensed milk (1/2 can condensed milk)
2 Tbsp sugar or as per taste (if using unsweetened condensed milk, adjust the quantity)
2-3 oranges (any sweet variety)

Method:
1. Bring the milk to boil in a nonstick pan. Then simmer on low flame till it reduces to half the original quantity, stirring intermittently. Using a nonstick pan and stirring is to avoid scorching.
2. Add the condensed milk and sugar to the pan and stir well. At this point you can continue boiling till the milk thickens attaining a creamy hue. Or for more convenience, add this mixture of milk and condensed milk to a microwave safe bowl and put it in the microwave for 2 -3 minutes, checking in between to avoid spilling. The final product should be a very thick, smooth mixture. Let cool.
3. In the meantime, get those oranges out of the refrigerator. Peel them and separate the segments. Remove the thin film clinging to those segments and cut each segment into two or three pieces.
4. Stir in the orange pieces to the cold milk in step 2 and refrigerate it for 3 -4 hours.
5. Serve chilled.

harini-jaya said...

Btw, Oranges in hot milk won't curdle? When exactly should the oranges be added?

Suma Gandlur said...

Orange pieces are added to the cold milk.
Though I earlier mentioned that you have to let the milk cool in step 2, I have now updated it in step 4 too to avoid any confusion. :)
