Boil milk in a pot. After the first boil, add chopped dry fruits and cook the milk on low flame till it thickens and changes color, It will take around 40-45 minutes. Keep on stirring in between to ensure that the milk doesn't get burnt or stick to the bottom.
While the milk is boiling peel the oranges, remove the pith and seeds and roughly chop the pulp.
Once the milk is done, add sugar, mix well, boil for another 2-3 minutes and then switch off the gas. Allow the milk to reach room temperature.
