IMG_20170418_225839.jpgIngredients:

  • Sabudana – 1 cup
  • Milk –  3 cups
  • Sugar – 1/2 cup
  • cashew (Kaju) – 12/15 pieces
  • Ghee – 1/2 tsp (for frying kaju)
  • Elaichi powder – 1 tsp

Recipe:

Wash the sabudana 2/3 times to remove the dirt and extra starch.Soak it in enough water overnight.It will soak water and swell in size.

Heat milk in a sauce pan and keep aside. Fry kaju with ghee and keep aside.

Heat 1 cup water in a kadai. Add sabudana into it and cook in medium flame for 2/3 minutes. Once the water becomes thick and sabudana becomes translucent, add milk into it. Keep stirring in medium flame to prevent it from burning at the base till sabudana becomes completely translucent. This is the sign that sabudana is cooked properly.

Once the kheer becomes thick, add sugar and stir for 2 more minutes.Switch off the flame. Add fried kaju. Sprinkle elaichi powder on the top of the kheer.

Serve chilled for better taste.

Note: You can add condensed milk for better taste.
