Chef Tips:

  1. Wash the sabudana till the water is clear i.e. for 4 to 5 times and then soak it for 01 hour.
  2. Do not add too much of cardamom powder as it will mask the delicate flavours of coconut.
  3. A pinch of salt is added to kheer, as it enhances and brings out the flavors and sweetness within.
  4. Place the sautéed coconut slices on a kitchen absorbent paper to remove excess of oil.
  5. If you want the kheer to have a crunch, add chopped and lightly sautéed coconut to it just before service.
