      This kheer is absolutely DIVINE!Saundana(sago) kheer happens to be one of my favourite desserts. I made this at 8:45 this morning(as soon as I woke up) and it was ready by 9:15am. My kitchen smells beautiful with the aroma of this kheer wafting through it! Today my dad will be fasting all through the day(for the soul of my late grandma to rest in peace). He is permitted to have only certain foods through the day, one of which, is sabudana. He is not allowed to have almonds or raisins today and so I had to omit these from this recipe. In my opinion, raisins should really be omitted from this kheer or they could be made an optional ingredient. I used low-fat milk to make this(to make it slightly guilt-free);-) Also, I used 6 green cardamoms(powdered in my mixer) and not just 2. The quantity of sugar in this is perfect. One important thing that I'd like to mention is that sabudana does not get soft very easily while cooking - it is pretty stubborn an ingredient! So, I soaked it in boiling hot water for 10 minutes before using it for this kheer. Another thing what I did was to keep checking if it had softened through the cooking process. I had to bring it to a boil four times and only then it was soft. Only after it was soft, I added in the sugar and then cooked it till the desired consistency. I Promise, I will make this often and my dad will be absolutely pleased to wake up from sleep and find this on the dining table! Thank YOU so much for a yummy dessert and for helping me out in the search for sabudana recipes.

      Exactly what I was looking for. This is really yummy. Nice balance of sweetness and spice. I washed and pre-soaked the tapioca and it cooked perfectly. I used low fat milk with no problems. Just like my mother used to make. Thanks very much !
