Shyavige sabakki payasa recipe - Vermicelli sago kheer

Sevai sabudana kheer in a serving bowl
Sevai sabudana kesar kheer recipe - Today I have an amazing vermicelli sago kheer recipe to share with you all. For me this is the easiest kheer I can ever prepare in the comfort of my kitchen. Milk is the basic ingredient which gives creamy taste to the kheer, whereas the quantity of sago and vermicelli is adjustable. Even you can make this type of kheer with vermicelli only. This is one of the Karnataka desserts usually served with meal during the occasion of marriage. Sometimes I too make it in the weekend to serve as a dessert. What I like in this kheer is its simplicity and taste. It has a delicate flavor of cardamom and saffron. The sago, vermicelli combination is absolutely delicious.
