Sago pudding|Sabudana kheer|How to make sabudana kheer

Sabudana kheer is one dessert which takes me back to my childhood instantly.

My mother and grandmother used to make this kheer every thursday(as they used to fast on thursdays).And me the little greedy girl,used to wait for thursday to come.

I used to attack this kheer with all my might and not even bothered to keep fasting food satvik or pure.Obviously my mom and grandmom never minded.And the result is that I am still super crazy for this kheer.

Sabudana kheer is also a great #babyfood as it is very soft on stomach and filling.
