Sabudana Kheer

I'm back after a fabulous vacation with family and friends back in India. It was a sad feeling to come back, but after a few nights' sleep I feel at home again. From the time hubby dearest landed, it was one hectic time shuttling between Mysore and Bangalore and a lot of other places in between. I have travelled more in the past two months than I could have ever in the past two years..phew! But it was fun all the same and pleasant memories to last me ...well, till my next trip home. :)

Sabudana/Sago kheer is a family favourite and is made very often at home. Especially when all of us go through a bout of excess body heat (which runs in the family :D), sabudana kheer helps combat the effects. It’s simple to make and takes no time.

You will need:

½ Cup Sabudana/Sago
½ Cup Sugar
2 Cups Milk
1 tbsp Cashew bits
1 tbsp Raisins
¼ tsp Saffron
¼ tsp Cardamom powder
½ tbsp Ghee

Bring a cup of water to boil and add washed sabudana. Bring to a boil and cook till sabudana is half done. Add boiling milk and let sabudana cook completely. Add sugar, cardamom powder and saffron. Bring to a boil, add more milk if required. Heat ghee in a small pan, add the cashews and raisins. Saute till golden brown. Add this to the kheer and mix well. Serve hot or cold.

I am sending this over to Srilekha's event "EFM Theme- Sweets" over at Me and My Kitchen.

Will be catching up with each of your blogs soon. Have a fabulous weekend!
