Sabudana/Sago kheer

After making the sabudana wadas, I had some of the soaked sago left. I stored them in the fridge for almost two days not knowing what to do with it. I was in no mood to make the usual khichdi which I had made just a couple of days back. I had seen the kheer recipe in many cookbooks and I found some other pudding recipes in the net. Then I settled on making kheer and it was simply delecious. Maybe I should try some malaysian pudding recipes with sago next time. I found some recipes on the net and it seemed so good.
