In a large vessel pour 2 litres milk and bring it to a rolling boil on medium heat.

step 3


Turn the heat to low and allow the milk to simmer and reduce to half the original quantity. This may take upto 1 hour.

Refrigerate for 4-5 hours. After 4 hours serve the chilled orange kheer, garnished with sliced pistachio.
