  1. I am not very fond of sago..but surely like all that fried stuff you put in there..absolutely it!

  2. Very creamy kheer, love the addition of coconut milk here.

  3. Good one, we make it during our festivals as well..I actually like sago so no issues..:)

  4. It's been very long since I had this... Lovely dear :)

  5. I love how sago cooks and shines up like pearls. There is something quite attractive about it :). Nice payasam!

  6. Love the addition of coconut milk in the payasam!

  7. I absolutely love love jevarasi payasam, but I can never make it right. For some reason it always makes my milk curdle once I add the milk to the cooked jevarasai. Adding coconut milk is such a flavorful idea.

  8. The roud javvarisi will make me happy.Love to have it any time.

  9. I love this payasam very much. I usually add milk, but coconut milk would give a lot of flavour, right?

  10. reminds me of the time when we used to wait for Amma to go shopping for sago kheer and Filter coffee was our snack then that we made chori chori.

  11. Evergreen payasam,delicious one,we use the regular milk for this payasam,never tried it with coconut milk...

  12. I am not a sago kheer fan but that tadka of nuts is a nice touch :)

  13. I always keep fingers crossed hike cooking sago, pressure method is new for me, like the addition of coconut milk.

  14. reminds me of childhood! the addition of both milk and coconut milk it's surely. investing. looks very rich and lovely

  15. Sago kheer is good in taste but it's very popular for fasting days like navratri

  16. Awesome recipe but it's not street food

  17. One of the festive payasam we turn to often. Good one :)

  18. I love javvarisi payasam and this looks so good

  19. Healthy and nutritious Payasam.

  20. Never added coconut milk and coconut to sago payasam. That's an interesting variation.
