Javvarisi Payasam / Sago Kheer / Sabudhana Kheer - Blogging marathon #27

    Today is my final day under the theme " Occasions" in blogging marathon #27.Then I will take a break from this marathon for a week and then be back with the "Seasonal" theme.So check my space for seasonal theme too.
        Under this theme,today I am going to post the important dessert in any "Tamil wedding ".Its sago kheer or javvarisi payasam. I specially love this payasam,as it has that unique texture .Sago will be looking like small eyes ,floating in the pool of milk.Whenver we have some guest at home, these kind of kheers ,works well .

Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#27



Ingredients:
1.Sago / Javvarisi              -              1/4 cup
2.Milk                                -              3 cups
3.Sugar                              -               1/4 cup
4.Cardamom pwdr            -                a pinch
5.Ghee                              -                 2 tbsp.
6.Cashews                        -                  2 tbsp.
7.Raisins                          -                   1 tbsp.

Method:
* Wash and soak the sago for 2 hours.After soaking,it would have doubled in its size.
* Take a pan,add ghee and fry the cashews till golden brown.Remove them and keep it aside. .In the same pan,fry the raisins till they blow like balloons. Immediately take them out from the pan and keep it.Because,if they are fried for so much time,then the raisins may taste taste bitter and they become so hard.

* In the same pan,add milk and bring it to boil. Now reduce the flame and cook the milk,untill it becomes thick. Now add the soaked sago and cook it .When the sago or javvarisi is cooked ,(this can be checked ,by pressing them by hand).The amount of milk needed can be altered according to our taste.If we want the kheer to be bit thick ,then we can reduce and if we want thin ,then add some more milk. We can also use water and reduce the amount of milk.



* Now add sugar to the kheer and mix it. Don't add sugar before the sago is cooked well.Because the addition of sugar will interrept the cooking process of sago.We can alter the amount of sugar according to our taste.Now add ardamom pwdr, fried cashews and raisins.Serve with pappad or vadai.
