Fruit and sago Payasam/ Dessert/ milk pudding

This is an interesting way to eat sago payasam. I first ate this dessert at my sisters inlaws place. It was an extremely new dish to me and immediately asked her for the recipe :)

I completely forgot to take pictures....remembered to take pictures only the next day when there was only 1 bowl left :( Will update the post with better pics next time I make it....which will be very soon :D

1/2 cup sago/ javarisi
water to boil the sago
2 cups water (approx)
4 heaped tbsps milk powder
2 tbsps sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 small tin fruit cocktail(in syrup)

  • Boil the sago in water till it turns transparent. drain and set aside
  • In a saucepan, heat 2 cups of the water (save one cup for later). Add the milk powder and simmer. stir and add the sugar.
  • Add the boiled sago and simmer for a few minutes till the sago blends with the milk.
  • Add the required amount of syrup from the fruit tin and adjust the sweetness.
  • If the dessert has become too thick add milk to bring it to the desired consistency.
  • switch off the flame. Add the vanilla essence.
  • when the dessert has cooled a bit add the drained fruits.
  • serve chilled

  • instead of milk powder you can use carnation milk or milk maid accordingly to enhance the taste .
  • you can even use plain milk.
