  • 1 tablespoon sliced pistachios
  • Few strands of saffron
  • 1/4 ¬†teaspoon cardamom powder

Method

  1. Wash and soak the tapioca in about 1/3 cups of water for at least two hour – sago will soak up most of the water and become light and fluffy.
  2. Boil the milk in heavy bottom pan after milk comes to boil let it boil for about another 8 to 10 minutes making sure stirring occasionally so milk does not burn in bottom of the pan.
  3. Add the tapioca, cook until soft and translucent – this should take about 4 minutes.
  4. Next add sugar, cardamom, pistachios, and saffron and boil for 2 to 3 minutes.
    Turn off the heat. As kheer cools it will become a little thicker in consistency.
  5. Serve chilled or warm.
