Orange special

by Sanjeev Kapoor

Menu: The best part about winters is the availability of a highly nutritious fruit, the orange. They are large, sweet and juicy. Besides eating the fruit in various forms, the peel can be sun dried and is powdered to be mixed with cream for face and body cleanser. Make a citrusy combination of dishes with this great fruit – start with Orange Mojito, next in line is Orange French Toast and end with Orange in Spiced Caramel.
