Sabudana (sago pearls) kheer recipeTweet
Sabudana or sago kheer is a very delicious kheer made with sago, jaggery, milk and nuts. It is also made with sugar. But it tastes divine when jaggery is added for making this kheer. Sago kheer is an ideal dessert during festival days or during fasting times. Sago is rich in carbohydrates and hence is very filling to the stomach. Sago kheer is a tradional Indian sweet dish and one of the easiest kheer to make.
- Sago or sabudana (tapioca pearl)- 1/2 cup
- Grated or powdered jaggery - 3/4 cup
- Boiled milk - 1 cup
- Water - 1 cup
- Cardamom powder - 1/4 teaspoon
- Cashewnuts - 10
- Raisins - 10
- Ghee - 2 tablespoons
Add cardamom powder, fried cashewnuts and raisins and mix well. Switch off the flame.
NOTES : I have added only 1 cup of milk as we prefer little thick kheer. You can add milk according to the consistency required. I have cooked sago in water first and added milk after the kheer is cooled down. This is because sometimes the milk tends to curdle. If you stir fry the sago in ghee, it does not stick to each other at the end. Add jaggery according to sweet taste desired by you.
