This is a sweet made with few ingredients ,no milk of any sort .Tastes amazing..!
I tried this with powdered jaggery and brown sugar .You could make this with sugar too.
You have to pre- soak sago overnight or for a minimum of 8 hours ( washed and soaked)
It is best to use the big variety of sago for easy grinding.
Well! let’s move on to the recipe.
200 gm( any cup measurement ) soaked sago
250 gm cup powdered jaggery (nattu sarkarai)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup ghee
1/4 cup pure coconut oil
1 tsp cardamon powder
Pinch of salt.
Grind the soaked sago to a thick paste and set aside.
Add the sugar and 3/4 cup water in a thick bottomed vessel and heat till sugar melts .
Add the ground sago with salt and mix .When the mixture starts to thicken add half of
the ghee and mix,After another 15 minutes of mixing , add coconut oil . Simultaneously
add ghee and oil like this every 15-20 minutes.
Add cardamon and cashewnuts and keep mixing till very thick and the mixture leaves
the sides of the pan.
Add a little oil or ghee and transfer to a tray.Allow to cool completely and cut into desired
Note: You could use only coconut oil or only ghee without combining.
If you are using only sugar you could try with vanilla essence
