Being a school holiday today, wanted to try a new recipe with my daughter.It had to be something easy aswell as new!!
So tried Sabudana kheer -an easy Indian sweet dish generally served for breaking fasts during religious festivals.You don’t need to fast to make this dish though.
Sabudana (also known as tapioca pearls )is made from the starch extracted from tapioca.Hence , it contains mainly carbohydrtes and is great for a quick boost of energy!!!
Taste of sabudana , as such is very neutral ,and takes on the flavors of the dish.
- Sabudana – 3/4 cup
- Milk -1 liter
- Sugar -5 Tbsp
- Cardamom – 4 nos.( powdered)
- Saffron – few strands (soaked in 2 Tbsp of milk a few minutes before adding )
- Almonds – chopped
Wash and drain sabudana and soak it in 1.5 cups of water for 4 hours.
(After 4 hours , we see the sabudana has soaked all the water and has increased in size.)
Now boil milk and add sugar to it.Mix well.
To it, add the soaked sabudana and boil for 10 -15 mins,till the sabudana is cooked.Make sure to continuously stir , so that the milk won’t burn at the bottom of the pan.
Add cardamom powder, saffron soaked in milk to the above mixture and let it boil for another 5 minutes, till the mixture is thicker.
Garnish with chopped almonds.
