Sabudana Kheer (Sago or Tapioca Pearls Pudding)

This sabudana kheer is made during fasting. But this is so tasty you can eat any time.  ;) 
Here I called "sabudana kheer" but locally known as "sabudana pej" in our Kokan.

Ingredients:

  • Sabudana/Sago- ¼ cup
  • Sugar- 2 tbsp
  • Milk- 1 cup (+ ¼ cup, add if you like thin kheer)
  • Cardamom powder- ¼ tsp 
  • Saffron- a pinch (optional- for garnishing)
  • Almond, roasted and sliced- 1 tsp (optional- for garnishing)
  • Water- ½ cup (for soaking)

Method:
  • Wash and soak sabudana in the water for whole night or atleast 3-4 hours. 
  • Combine soaked sabudana, milk, sugar, cardamom powder together in the pan.
  • Boil and cook till sabudana is cooked. (You will see, sabudana become transparent.) Stir continuously to avoid lumps. 
  • Add ¼ cup milk, if you like thin consistency and switch off the gas.
  • Mix well.
  • Pour in the pudding glass or bowl. Garnish with saffron and almond flakes and serve.
  • Serve hot or cold as your like.

Personally I like hot and thin kheer (pej) without saffron and dry fruits as we eat traditionally. And believe me, it is really tasty.
