Silky and sweet pudding made using sago pearls (sabudana), milk and sugar is sabudana kheer. Sabudana kheer is flavored with cardamom, coconut, and saffron. These flavors complement the kheer very justly. It is a very common preparation during the fasts as sabudana is consumed a lot during fasts.
Sago Pearls (sabudana): Good quality sabudana is indispensable for any sabudana recipe. Further, it is equally important to wash and soak it correctly.
Milk: Full cream milk will give better results. I had skimmed milk, so used that but managed to get a silky texture by cooking the kheer properly.
Sugar: Sweetness can be adjusted as per taste.
Other ingredients for flavoring: Saffron strands dissolved in lukewarm milk, cardamom powder, and coconut flakes are used to flavor the sabudana kheer. You can add in nuts of your choice.
