Yes it was a Status symobol in those days(in 90's)..LOL..this is because to prepare authethic Kheera was a too costly and people will consume more..sounds weired. But I'm right Kheera was not available so easily in markets as it is now. People love to have it!!!

Kheera is Odisha signature dish!!!!

Kheera made by boiling the milk on low heat for a long time until it becomes dense and changes its color to brownish and Sugar, spices and nuts are added to it to give it flavor. It is chilled and served with chenna/cottage cheese.  .Although  the milk and sugar, and boiled further until some of the milk evaporates and the dish acquires a thicker consistency, to form a rabdi.
