Reading the message from the Pizza Point today left me totally amazed. The message read Pizza Point presents Navratra Pizza made with Sabudana, Singhara and Rock Salt. Wow, this seems to be an amazing way of delivering happiness to the devotees, who bear the pain of giving up their favorite food during these 9 auspicious days.
Sabudana is the primary food that people prefer during these fasts. Not just the pizzas but there are other dishes too, that can be prepared from Sabudana. Sabudana Kheer, a sweet dish made from milk is another great delicacy that can be consumed during these auspicious days. Making it at home is not a tough task and adding Kaloree1 instead of the sugar, makes it a much healthier option during these fast.
Therefore, without wasting any more time, let’s just look quickly at the steps to prepare this special dish.
- ½ cup of sabudana or tapioca pearls – for a much denser kheer, you can add another ⅔ to ¾ cup sabudana
- 2 cups of organic milk
- 2 cups of water
- 5 pellets of Kaloree1
- 4-5 green cardamom seeds husked and crushed in a mortar-pestle to a semi fine powder
- 2 tbsp chopped cashews
- ½ tbsp raisins
- 3-4 saffron strands/kesar (optional)
Steps to prepare:
- Rinse the sabudana pearls, till the water clears the entire starch from it.
- Use a thick bottomed pan for preparing the kheer.
- Add the rinsed sabudana pearls and water in the pan.
- Cover the pan and let the pearls soak in water for 15-20 minutes.
- Now cook the mixture in a mild flame.
- After 4-5 minutes of cooking, add warm milk in the pearl and water mixture.
- Add pellets of Kaloree1 and cardamom powder in it and continue to cook it for another 20 to 25 minutes.
- While doing the above, don’t forget to stir it occasionally.
- Switch off the stove and add cashews and raisins in it.
- Now garnish the sabudana kheer with saffron strands.
Your sabudana kheer is now ready to be served. To get the best taste of your labor, try consuming it when it is still warm.
