Sago Kesari Recipe - Easy Holi Recipes

Sago Kesari Recipe
I have endless love towards Kesari Recipes.I tried Sago Kesari today and I was not even sure whether such a recipe existed but still wanted to give a try with my idea.I was looking for some easy Holi recipes and this idea of Sago / Sabudana / Javvarisi Kesari flashed today morning, I put it into execution at once and the kesari came out soo good.This is a very easy sweet that you can make for Holi, rich and tasty sweet that you can make in minutes with easily available ingredients.

Kesari Recipes:

There is also another reason for me to post a sweet today. This day 6 years back l started a blog just to record my passions and named it Sharmis Passions.Little did I knew it would become a integral part of me and will be helpful to others too.When I look back, I don't have regrets, though bumpy at times it had been a great ride all through these 6 yrs.I thoroughly enjoy the process right from getting the ingredients, cooking, arranging, composing a shot, editing and publishing a post to present it to you.

This year had been great with few media mentions, 30 dessert feature in Kungumam Thozhi,a invite from Zone, and one of my dreams come true to have involved in a photoshoot for foodstyling for KR Bakes.

A Biiiiig thanks to my family, all my readers and friends who keep motivating me!
Happy Birthday to Sharmis Passions!
Stepping into the 7th year with all your support and encouragement!!

Sago Kesari Recipe

My Notes:

  • I used nylon sago if you are using the usual white sago variety then soak it overnight and then cook it.
  • You can also add your favorite essence too but I love the plain cardamom flavour the best.
  • If you like elachi flavour more, just skip saffron and add a generous pinch of cardamom powder.
  • Sago kesari doesn't require much ghee like the other kesari recipes.
  • This keeps well for 2 days if refrigerated after a day.And while serving just heat it up and drizzle little ghee and serve.
