Sago Halwa ( Indian Pearl Dessert )


Dear friends today is my 50th post ...cannot imagine how it all started ... i was searching for a recipe, accidentally came across a blog and got introduced to the blogging world and ended up blogging !! : )

This recipe is from my moms kitchen and whenever she prepared this halwa in my childhood i would wait eagerly next to her and once she shifted the halwa to a serving bowl i would lick the pan in and out to finish it. It is one of my favourite desserts very easy to prepare and hardly takes 30 mins. And this occasion is perfect to celebrate , thank you friends for all your encouraging comments and make blogging fun.

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup sago
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp ghee
  • 1 tbsp chopped fried cashewnuts
  • 2 cardamom crushed
  • 1 tbsp chopped almonds
  • few drops of red color
Cooking Procedure:

Take a pan and dry roast the sago for 3-4 mins, once the sago start to splutter

Make the flame medium and add water and milk into the pan and stir occasionally .

Add hot water if required until sago cooks.

After sago cooks let all the water evaporate and it becomes bulky.

Add sugar and stir for another 2 min.

Once the sugar blends and all moisture evaporates add ghee and stir.

Once the halwa does not stick to the pan add the color and stir nicely.

Add the crushed cardomom, roasted cashews and fresh chopped almonds and mix nicely

Serve hot

This delicious halwa goes to 4 wonderful events
