  • ½ cup sabudana or tapioca pearls
  • 1½ cup of milk
  • 5 dates or khajur
  • 1 tbsp coconut slices
  • 5 almonds
  • 5 raisins


  1. First, soak sabudana in half a 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. In a pan on low flame, add the soft sabudana along with the milk in which we soaked them and dates.
  3. Further, add 1 cup of milk, raisins, or kishmish and start cooking low to medium heat. When there is a thick consistency, switch off the heat and serve hot garnished with sliced coconuts and almonds.


  1. Soak sabudana in milk with crushed dates. This imparts a mild sweet taste in the final dish. Adding 5 dates makes the dish sweet enough to be relished with great love but if you want it to be a little extra sweet, go ahead and add a sweetener of your choice.
