Sabudana payas(Sago payasam)

Sabudana payasam is mainly eaten on Ekadashi fasting. It takes a short time to cook after soaking and tastes absolutely heaven.

4 tbsp sabudana (sago)

1 1/2 cup milk

4tbsp sugar

Big 3-4 cardmom (powdered)


Wash sabodana for 2-3 times and drain all the water. Add 1 tbsp of water and soak for 2-3 hrs. Heat milk in a vessel. When milk is becomes warm add sago.On low heat cook stirring continuously as sabudana has a tendency to stick to the bottom of the pan. When the sabudana turns transparent, that means it is cooked. Add sugar and cook stirring for 2-3 minutes. Cook till you get the desired consistency of the kheer. Turn off the heat. Add cardmom powder. Serve hot or cold as dessert. You can always add dry fruits. I like to have it when the payas is hot. Its taste excellent. This can also be cooked in microwave.
