Citrus Pudding with Whipped Cream

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 !!

orange juice 1 cup
tangerine juice 1 cup
lemon juice 1 cup
unsalted butter 1 tbsp
corn starch 3 tbsp
sugar 3 tbsp
orange rind 1/2 tsp
tangerine rind 1/2 tsp
heavy whipping cream 1/4 cup
salt 1/4 tsp

-Combine sugar and the rinds together in a sauce pan and crush with a wooden spoon.
-Add in the tangerine juice and orange juice.Mix the corn starch in little juice and add to it.Add salt and keep stirring.
-Bring to boil for 2 minutes and until thickened stirring constantly.
-Remove from heat and add the lemon and butter.
-Pour pudding into a bowl and cover the surface with a plastic wrap to avoid formation of thin film.
-Chill in a refrigerator .
-In the meantime ,place cream in a bowl.Beat with  mixer at high speed untill stiff peaks form.Fold half of cream into pudding .
-Serve half of dessert bowl with pudding and 1 tablespoon of whipped cream on top.

Servings 4 dessert bowls

*You can use bottled juices too,I used the fresh ones.

great idea and lovely pudding. Tangerines and oranges confuses many a lot,but I love tangerines over oranges as they are bit more citrus I feel, tangy and close to the taste of the orange we used to have in India..
