Kinnow delight | Kinoo delight | Kinu delight is a creamy fruity dessert made using kinnow/Kinoo/kinu that is worth trying when markets are flooded with kinnow.

This dessert is delight to eat and pretty easy to make with few handy ingredients like hung curd, heavy cream, sugar, agar agar, cornstarch along with fresh kinnow juice.

It looks attractive when served in kinnow shells which imparts great flavour to this dessert.

Yogurt adds tang to this citrus flavored dessert. It’s so pretty and refreshing too.

Similarly I have shared the recipe of Watermelon jelly, that is a lovely homemade and easy dessert loved by kids as well adults also.

Few years ago when I saw this fabulous dessert shared on one of the FB food group, I decided to give it a try.

Somehow it took a backseat, I completely forgot about this. But this year, when I saw kinnows flooding the markets, I jumped with joy and took out my notes, and voila, it is here on my blog as a wonderful addition to the list of desserts.

 

What is Kinnow/Kinoo/kinu?

According to Wikipedia, this fruit kinnow/Kinoo/kinu is a high yield mandarin and is a hybrid of two citrus cultivators ‘King’ and ‘Willow.

You can call of a kinnow as the foreign cousin of desi orange. Moreover kinnow is much more juicier than orange.

In addition to that kinnow has a thicker skin that’s tight. Whereas Oranges are known to have very light and thin skin that you can easily peel.

It’s majorly grown in indian states like Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, Rajasthan and even Haryana.
