Another year, lots of new dreams…..
I think this is for the first time in 7 years of blogging that I am writing a food post on the very first day of the year. Though I always plan to post something from day one of the year and make a resolution to post regular…as the year unfolds…like other resolutions I make and break…this will also end up…So for this year I made no resolutions….just to live each day with Iman and be happy. I always believed, life should not be bound by rules…and I still remember my dear friends words…what you deserve is you get and what you is get is you deserve….though this line sounds so simple…living to it is very hard at times….
Every day is a new beginning if you want to start afresh…..isn’t it??? Sometimes for somethings to do anew…you don’t need to wait for perfect time…they just happen….I am a girl who still believes in everyday miracles, unseen prayers and above all trust Almighty Allah and believes….whatever happens, happens for good.
Let’s move on to post now…That which starts on sweet note always ends on sweet….Today I am going to share with you my family’s very favorite Sago-Vermicelli ki Kheer (Sabudana-Semiyah ki Kheer). Grainy vermicelli and soft melt in mouth sago cooked in richness of milk and then topped with ghee fried cashew nuts give your palate a royal indulgence. So let’s dig in…..
- ½ lit. Milk
- ½ cup Vermicelli
- ¼ cup Sago
- ½ tbsp. Cardamom powder
- ¾ cup Sugar
- 4 tbsp. Ghee
- 10-12 Cashew nuts
- Thoroughly wash, drain and soak sago in enough water for at least 2 hours.
- In a thick bottom sauce pan, add ghee and deep fry cashew nuts on low flame until nice golden. Remove on to kitchen tissue and set aside.
- In the same sauce pan, on low flame add vermicelli and roast fry until nice golden by turning up and down to get roasted evenly.
- When the vermicelli is completely roasted, add 2 cups of water and cook vermicelli till half done.
- Now add soaked sago and continue to cook till vermicelli and sago are completely cooked. Drain excess water, if any remaining and set aside.
- Bring milk to boil and lower the flame. Slowly stir in above boiled vermicelli and sago.
- Stir and let this cook for 10 minutes or until the consistency is reduced to half.
- Add sugar along with cardamom powder. Stir to combine well and leave this to cook on low flame until thick or till you get consistency of your choice by gently stirring to avoid sticking at the bottom of the pan.
- Serve warm or chilled by garnishing with fried cashew nuts.
- Add love to make this kheer taste ‘Yummy’.
