Sabudana Kheer Recipe

This is a creamy smooth kheer. Sabudana kheer is generally made during Navratri festival or during fast. However, one does not need to be on fast to enjoy it J. This traditional Indian sweet is made from sago pearls, and can be prepared in less than 20 minutes. Ask me how, boil sago with some milk and then, reduce the milk and making it thick, then add sugar. Finally finishing it off with cardamom powder and nuts.
