About Tapioca Custard Apple Pudding or Sabudana Sitaphal Payasam Recipe

Sabudana Kheer / Sago Payasam / Tapioca Pudding is a very traditional Indian sweet dish. This is made across most regions of India specially during fasting. Besides satiating our taste buds in the fasting season, sabudana or tapioca pearl can fulfill the nutritional needs of the body. Sabudana is highly rich in carbohydrates. To the simple sabudana kheer, I have added custard apple pulp to give a fruity flavor. This sabudana custard apple kheer can be served chilled as well as warm. There is a bit unique taste in the kheer due to addition of custard apple pulp and also the pulp gives the kheer more thickness. This kheer is so simple and easy to prepare and tastes heavenly. Here the process of condensing the milk will give the kheer a nice creamy texture. The sabudana custard apple kheer can be made for festive, other special occasions or even just as dessert. Lets go in details.
