Chavvari Payasam ~Sabudana Kheer ~ A simple Sago dessert !



Sago or sabudana (chavvari in Malayalam) is often added in payasams.This is to enhance the flavor and thickness.I do this often while preparing Prathaman.But this one is a payasam/kheer with sago as the star ingredient.Very gentle and soft,this kheer without no doubt,is a winner..Do try for a change !

Ingredients

3/4 cup sago/chavvari
1 liter whole,boiled milk
2 cups boiling water
1 cup sugar
1.5 tbsp ghee
1/2 tsp cardamom powder
few strands saffron (optional)
handful of cashew nuts,raisins,pistas to garnish

Method

Heat 1 tsp ghee in a heavy bottomed vessel and fry sago for 2 minutes or till it’s transparent.Add boiling water to this and cook till it’s soft and thick.This can be done in a medium heat.Take out from the fire when it’s done and drain off the excess water.This process can keep sago intact.Now add the whole boiled milk to this and cook in low flame till boiling point.In between add sugar and slowly mix it to merge in payasam.Add cardamom powder as well.Simmer till medium thick .Remove from fire.Heat ghee in another pan and roast the cashews and raisins.Garnish with all dry fruits and saffron.Let it remain for a while.Serve hot or cold.
