Sabudana Khajur Kheer Recipe


  • 1⁄2 cup sabudana or tapioca pearls
  • 11⁄2 cup of milk
  • 3-4 dates or khajur
  • 1 tbsp coconut slices
  • 4-5 almonds or badam
  • 6-7 raisins or kishmish


  1. First, soak sabudana in half cup of milk and crushed dates for 5 hours or overnight.
  2. Then, after 5 hours, the sabudana will double in size, soaking up most of the milk and softening up.
  3. Next, in a pan on low flame, add the soft sabudana along with the milk in which we soaked them and dates.
  4. Further, add 1 cup of milk, raisins or kishmish and start cooking low to medium heat.
  5. Finally, when there is a thick consistency, switch off the heat and serve hot garnished with sliced coconuts and almonds.


  1. I soak sabudana in milk with crushed dates so a nice mild sweet taste is also soaked in the dish. I found out that adding 4 dates makes the dish sweet enough to be relished with great love but if you want it to be extra sweet, go ahead and add a sweetener of your choice.
