sabudana kheer

We generally make sabudana kheer in the Navratri vrats or other vrats. I also prepare samak ke chawal ki kheer. But this one tastes very good. So, I prefer this one generally. My mother in law likes the samak ke chawal ki kheer.

It is very popular in India during the fasting season. In India, we prepare many dishes for vrats with sabudana like sabudana vada, sabudana khichdi, etc.

It is very easy to make. And it is so creamy smooth kheer. You will definitely love it.

Tip for Making Kheer

  1. We need to cook sabudana completely otherwise, it will not taste good.
  2. Sabudana kheer becomes thick after cooling. So, make the consistency a little thin. And if you want to have it hot, then no need to add extra milk. But this tip will save your dish.

Below are the recipes which will make your vrat thali complete:

Kuttu ki puri
Aloo tamatar ki sabji
Sabudana khichdi
Sabudana Vada
Aloo ka raita
Samak ke chawal

and other sweet recipes for the vrat are sabudana kheer, ghiya/lauki ki kheer, aloo halwa, dhaniya panjiri, dry coconut burfi

How to make sabudana kheer without soaking

Some people make kheer by soaking sabudana in water. Sabudana quality matters a lot. If you have a good quality of sabudana then there is no need to soak it for making its kheer. But if you don’t have a good quality of sabudana then you may need to soak it. It cooks in the boiling milk as well and it becomes soft.

Well, I had a good quality of sabudana. I did not soak it for making kheer. I just washed it in running water. But for making sabudana khichdi I have to soak it.

Always purchase a good quality sabudana.
