Servings 3


  • ½ cup sabudana or tapioca pearls - for a denser kheer - we can add â…” to ¾ cup sabudana
  • 2 cup milk
  • 2 cup water
  • 4 to 5 tbsp sugar or as required
  • 4-5 green cardamoms - husked and crushed in a mortar-pestle to a semi fine powder
  • 2 tbsp chopped cashews
  • ½ tbsp raisins
  • 3-4 saffron strands/kesar - optional


  • Rinse the sabudana pearls till the water runs clear of the starch.
  • Take a thick bottomed pan or sauce pan in which you will be making the kheer.
  • Add the rinsed sabudana pearls and water in the pan.
  • Cover and let the pearls get soaked in the water for 15-20 minutes.
  • Later keep this pan on the stove top and begin to cook the pearls.
  • Meanwhile heat or warm the milk too. No need to boil the milk.
  • After 4-5 minutes, add the milk to the pan and continue to cook.
  • Add sugar and cardamom powder and simmer till the pearls have cooked well for about 20-25 minutes on a low to medium flame.
  • Keep on stirring occasionally.
