Sago Palm Jaggery Kheer

                            Happy Tamil New Year/Iniya Thamizh Puthandu Nal Vazhuthukkal

14th April is Tamilian's New Year and every year we will definitely celebrate this special day without an hesitation eventhough sometime it will fall on a working day. Obviously am wishing you all a happy new year,may this year bring you more happiness, health and wealth. Its going to be a feast at home tomorrow, am busy in cleaning and getting ready for new year celebration at home.

For the celebration, am sharing here a different kheer with sago aka sabudana cooked along with palm jaggery as kheer. This kheer is definitely healthy coz of palm jaggery. Palm jaggery is usually used in South Indian cooking.Palm jaggerys is quite less calorific sweetner when compared to the usual sweetners.Adding plam jaggery will definitely gives a wonderful colour to this delicious kheer and prefect for the celebration.


1cup Sago/Sabudana
2cups Milk
3/4cup Palm Jaggery (grated)
1/2tsp Cardamom
Few cashews
1tbsp Ghee
Few cucumber seeds for topping

Soak the sago for 10 minutes and drain it, this will help for quick cooking,if its a small variety no need to soak and cook directly.

Heat the ghee, fry the cashews until it turns brown and remove it.

In the same vessel, fry the soaked sago for few seconds, add now 2 cups of water and let it cook for few minites.

Meanwhile make a thick syrup with palm jaggery with enough water.

Now add the palm jaggery syrup,milk to the cooking sago and cook until the sago gets well cooked.

Finally add the cardamom powder and fried cashews to the kheer.

Serve topped with some cucumber seeds.
