How to make komla lebur payesh:
For this sweet kheer recipe, peel the oranges. Remove the white fibre and thin film from each segment.
Extract the juicy orange pulp and keep aside.
Heat half-a-litre milk in a deep pot.
Bring the milk to a boil, reduce heat to medium and keep stirring it intermittently.
When the milk reduces slightly, stir in sugar.
Simmer on low medium heat, stirring intermittently (to prevent burning). Once the milk has a thickish consistency and reduces to about one-fourth the original volume, sprinkle cardamom powder and remove. The thickened kheer has an ivory hue to it.
Completely cool the thickened milk. Pop the kheer into the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
After half an hour, remove the payesh and add the orange pulpy flesh.
Mix gently. Refrigerate santre ki kheer for about an hour.
