To make 4 cups

Ingredients:

Sago / Sabudana – ½ cup
Sugar – ½ cup
Cardamom – 6 pods
Ghee – 2 tablespoons
Cashew nuts – 10, whole
Raisins – 1 tablespoon
Milk –2 cups
Water -3 cups



Method:

Heat the vessel and pour in the ghee; when just hot, fry the cashew nuts and raisins separately in it and remove to a plate. Fry the sago next in the hot ghee and remove to another plate. Bring 3 cupfuls of water to the boil. Put in the fried sago, stirring the water while doing so to prevent lumps forming. When the sago has boiled till it looks sticky and has a spongy transparent appearance, add the sugar. Stir constantly till the sugar gets blended into the sago; then pour the two cupfuls of boiled milk . Simmer till it becomes semi-thick and remove from the heat. Mix in the fried cashew nuts, raisins, and cardamom powder. Serve hot.

    I tried 5 times, everything was good except I cannot see any pearls of Chowari or sago in it. Lokks like all melted into the milk. I fried it, used boiled water and boiled milk. My question is do we get different kind of Sago. Mine says "Pearls of Tapioca". Am I using the right one??
