Sabudana Kheer / Sago Pudding

Sago pudding is a sweet pudding made by boiling sago with either water or milk and adding sugar and sometimes additional flavourings. It is made in many cultures with varying styles, and may be produced in a variety of ways.
In Malaysia, sago gula melaka is a sago pudding made by boiling pearl sago in water and serving it with syrup of palm sugar (gula melaka) and coconut milk
In the UK, "sago pudding" is generally made by boiling pearl sago and sugar in milk until the sago pearls become clear, and thickening it with eggs or cornflour. ( Source - Wikipedia)

Sabudana kheer is a popular dish in India and is eaten mostly during fasts. It can be made using different kinds of flavours , but my family loves cardamom flavour. Here, i am sharing step by step recipe with pictures. ....


Sabudana / Sago - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Milk - 300 ml
Cardamom powder - 1 small teaspoon
Saffron strands for garnishing
Pistachios - Sliced for garnishing


Soak sago for 1 hr in water and then drain. You can also use sago directly without soaking but then it needs to be boiled in milk for more time.

In a pan, boil milk and once boiled add sabudana/ sago. Stir.

It will soon start to thicken. Now add sugar. Keep stirring till sago pearls turn transparent ( it means sago is cooked). It takes approx 15 minutes. 

Add 1 small teaspoon cardamom powder now. Mix and switch of the flame after 5 minutes. In all the whole process takes approx 25 -30 minutes.

Serve hot in dessert bowls. Garnish with sliced pistachios and saffron strands and enjoy the heavenly taste of sago  pudding. 
 Hope you liked it...
