O - Orange ji Barfi / Orange Fudge

Cuisine : Sindhi

O for Orange ! The minute the alphabet O comes you think of Orange so what could be better than Orange ji Mithai with the alphabet O in our Journey through Cuisines.

The Orange is actually called Naarangi in Sindhi , but I had to resort to this English word as I had absolutely no choice.

The Orange ji Mithai is made with a little orange Zest, khoya sugar and some food color and essence. It was my first trial with this mithai and I was very happy with the result. In fact I carried this mithai for my daughter and her FIL was really impressed. I know I should have let the mithai set a little longer to get firm pieces, but since I was in a rush to carry it, I did not wait. The mithai had a very pleasing citrusy flavor and I actually could have finished the whole lot.

I am also linking this post to the A-Z Challenge.

 Here is the recipe...

Orange Barfi

500 gms unsweetened khoya
250-300 gms powdered sugar
1-2 tsp orange zest
Few drops orange color
Few drops orange color

Grate the khoya and mix with sugar.
Place in a heaven bottomed pan and cook on slow fire.
Cook till the mixture becomes semi solid.
Remove from fire.
Let cool, add the zest, color and essence.
Mix well and spread on a greased tray.
Cut into squares and garnish with almonds.
