I have never cooked sago aka tapioca pearls with a dal. When i picked Sweet of similar kind as theme for this week’s blogging marathon, i seriously want to give a try to a sweet dish with sago and dal. Hence i opted for Kheer, after two delicious and whole grain based Indian style kheer, my today’s post is an another interesting kheer. Am trying to add less refined ingredients like maida, white sugar in my cooking nowadays. Obviously this kheer is prepared completely with palm jaggery syrup. Hence this kheer looks bit dull in colour. Also the palm jaggery i used in this dish was very much dull in colour which i grabbed during my India trip.

Sago, Dal Payasam with Palm Jaggery, Javarisi Pasiparuppu Payasam

I got super fresh palm jaggery from a local vendor who sells his own products directly to his customers, obviously i got few boxes which he carefully packed with palm leaves to preserve their flavor and their shelf -life. The palm jaggery works awesome in kheer, but dont add jaggery syrup directly to the kheer while boiling. This may curdles the kheer. Once the kheer gets ready, put off the stove, remove the kheer from the stove and add the jaggery syrup to avoid curdling. I have already heard that many gets scared to prepare kheers with jaggery coz of this curdling issues. But trust me, take care not to add the jaggery syrup while boiling. This works awesome and i have been following this simple step since a long.

Meanwhile, make a thick jaggery syrup with the palm jaggery.

Fry the cashews in ghee until they turns golden brown, keep aside.

Once the kheer turns bit thick, put off the stove, add the cardamom powder.

Remove the kheer from the stove and add the palm jaggery syrup slowly to the kheer.

Finally add the fried cashew nuts, give a stir.

Enjoy warm.
