Hope every one had a blessed Christmas attending church mass and all tired after shopping the last minute gift purchases and visiting friends,relatives exchanging gifts.Kids are the most enjoying groups in this festive season and they are thrilled to welcome the santa.We too had a happy Christmas and some of our friends visited at our place too.Every year I love this particular week of the year not only to celebrate Christmas but also to recollect the whole year activities;good or bad and like everyone waiting eagerly to start off the new year with new resolutions(which are never applied:-))
Anyway,Coming back to Today's recipe -A Citrus Pudding with a touch of whipped cream.When I first started off with the ingredients ,I had some doubts regarding oranges and tangerines.Hope some of you might also have the same so thought to share the notes which I googled and found out.Orange and tangerine are both citrus fruits but they are not the same. Though they are considered to be belonging to the same species, orange and tangerine differ in many aspects like their shape, smell and taste.
Tangerine is smaller than orange. Tangerine is considered to be excellent pocket foods as they come in small shape and easily removed rinds. Tangerine is a variety of Mandarin orange or Citrus reticulata.Oranges are round citrus fruits much bigger than Tangerine. When talking about the taste, Oranges are sweet and tangerines are less sour or tart than that of oranges.The recipe is simple yet a healthy one richly packed with vitamin C.Try this out for a tangy different flavour !!
