Healthy and tasty sabudhana kheer

Easy to make healthy kheer made with sabudana/ pearl sago. Sabudana is a corn starch extracted from tapioca root which has lots of health benefits. In Kerala it is known as chowari and we give this as babu food for infants. Sabudana is famous in both South India and North India. There are lots of recipes like sabudana khichdi, upma and snacks we make with sabudana. This sabuduna kheer is my son’s most favorite dessert. He named this kheer as “ball payasam” (because of the shape I guess 🙂 ). This recipe I made for his birthday and I decided to make it more special by adding nuts and tutti frutti. He liked the crunchy and chewy taste of the kheer. Add roasted nuts and tutti frutti while serving to make the kheer more crunchy. This kheer tastes yummier when chilled and you can replace sugar with jaggery. I have uploaded the video link above and you can also find the video in Malayalam here. I hope you all will like this kids special sabudana kheer recipe. You can also check my Kheer recipes collection.
