Life and Laugh

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
Children are very innocent, but still they teach us lessons with their innocence in the life,and make us laugh with the same innocence.
This is one recent experience I had last week.
My elder daughter Rajul was chatting online with her father last week. While chatting, he was explaining her that she is big girl now(only 7 yrs!!), and need to take care of mother(That's me), her sister, Naani(My mother), mama and mami. He wanted say do not trouble any one!

Her immediate reaction: Papa, I am not octopus,I don't have 8 hands to take care of all at one time!!!!

keep Smiling,

Sago(Sabudana) kheer

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All

Sago kheer is one of favourite sweet dish of my husband. He likes to have it with puris.
And Today is my husband's birthday. Missing him on his great day and this sweet is for him. Waiting for him to join us as soon as possible.
It is must on Hanuman jayanthi in our home.(No particular reason for that!!) Its easy to make and as I am not soaking the sabudana, its done whenever we feel like having.
Even though its very common sweet, its taste is different.
Here is the recipe.
Sago - 1 cup
(Smaller size will be fine, as we are directly cooking without soaking it)
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Ghee - 2 tbsp
Cardamom powder - 1 tsp
Milk - 1 cup
Water as per required.
Take the pan with thick bottom, keep it on fire. when its hot, add ghee and add sabudana. Fry till they are almost double in size. If they don't turn into double size, its fine, fry till nice aroma comes. Remove and keep aside. Add milk in the same pan. When it starts boiling, add the fried sabudana. Let it cook for 5 minutes or till its cooked 3/4Th. Now add sugar and 1/4 cup water. Let it boil till sabudana is cooked full. It may take 10 minutes approx. Now add cardamom and boil it for a minute.
Sago kheer is ready to serve hot. Or keep in the fridge and have cold kheer.
I am sending this to Srivalli's Announcing Mithai Mela ~ Celebrating 2 years!
Hope all will like it.
Keep smiling,
