With the current heat wave and extreme hot weather in Malaysia, we are advised to reduce outdoor strenuous activities and stay indoor. It is advisable to drink plenty of water to prevent any illnesses. Besides water, any refreshing dessert is also recommended. One of the desserts which I used to make for my family is Steamed Orange. Besides refreshing and good for body heatiness, Steamed Orange is also a grandma home remedy for cough and sore throat which is quite well-known among the locals in Malaysia. It is delicious too!
For a start, you need a fresh orange. I used Sunkist orange.
Wash it thoroughly.
Cut off the top part of the orange. Do not discard the top part.
Use a small knife to make a small hole enough for the salt.
Add 1/2 tsb of salt into the hole. I used sea salt.
Cover the top part of the orange. Use a toothpick to hold the orange together. Place it in a small bowl.
Steam it for 15 to 20 minutes depending on the fire. You will know that it is ready when the fragrant of the orange fills your kitchen.
The steamed orange is ready.
Look at the juice! So tempting!
Eat the flesh and the juice. You will love it!Serve this Steamed Orange to your family as a refreshing dessert. You can serve it warm or chilled. Refrigerate it if you like it chilled.
Hope you all like it. Do give it a try!
