Sabudana Saffron Kheer
Janmashtami- One of the most celebrated festivals in India. This day brings we cook and serve sweets as we rejoice at the birth of Lord Krishna. A variety of milk based desserts are offered to him today as prasadam.
On this auspicious occassion we prepared Sabudana Saffron Kheer today to offer to Lord Krishna. It can be had on days when you are fasting as the ingredients contain no grains and is falahari or faryali as more commonly known.
Let's get to the recipe.
Sabudana Saffron Kheer garnished with some chopped pistachios.
Sabudana Saffron Kheer is a delicious way to add a dessert to your meal while fasting.
2 Cups Milk
3 tbsp Sabudana Soaked for about 2 hours
2 tbsp Sugar
2 tbsp Jaggery powder
2 tbsp Cashews, Almonds, pistachios(chopped)
1 tsp Cardamom powder
8-10 Saffron strands soaked in milk
Take a flat bottomed pan and boil milk on slow flame for two boils. Once the milk boils add the sugar and jaggery powder stirring constantly.
Add in the soaked sabudana and boil until the sabudana turns transparent and is completely cooked.(Takes around 10-15 minutes)
Once the milk thickens add in the soaked saffron along with cardamom powder, and half of the chopped nuts.
Stir constantly while the sabudana cooks to prevent the milk from sticking to the bottom of the pan. once cooked garnish with chopped nuts and serve.
Chill in the refrigerator before serving. (Optional)
Pro-Tip: Use a flat pan while boiling milk for Kheer as it reduces the time required to thicken the milk for luscious and creamy texture. Do not forget to stir constantly to prevent it from burning.
Switch your regular kheer or fasting dessert from halwas to this creamy and nutty Kheer recipie. Adding jaggery gives a distinct flavour to this kheer also it takes no time to cook and is light on the stomach is filling ,and tastes delicious.
