So anyway, what does sago look like?
Like this...but you can't just eat it right now. (No matter how tempted you may be. Trust me, I tried). You need to soak it till it doubles in size, turns soft and pearly white, almost translucent.
- 1 litre milk
- 1 cup, sabudana or sago, soaked for a few hours
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1 tsp cardamom powder, freshly ground
For the garnish,
- 1 tbsp cashew nuts
- 1 tbsp raisins
- 1 tbsp ghee
Add the remaining milk, cardamom powder and stir. Now add the nuts and raisins. Very exciting to watch the ghee sputter on the contact with the milk. Try it.
