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.
