Komala payasam or orange milk pudding  is a delicious milk based dessert  ideal for summer.  It is usually prepared during festivities in West Bengal.

This kheer is often made in Bengali homes. It was the favourite sweet of Poet Rabindranath Tagore.

The daily cooking trend is largely affected by the season that we are experiencing. It was a delight when I saw this one, I wanted to make something similar but was not sure if something existed or how it would turn, but then Komala Payasa turned out to be a good one.

The first time I  saw this on my friends Sasmita’s blog, The First Timer Cook and soon I had replicated it.  I was indeed happy to see this one. Sasmita is a wonderful person and a good cook.

A few milk based recipes from the blog
