  • 1/2 cup sabudana (tapioca pearls)
  • 2 ripe mangoes, peeled and diced
  • 4 cups milk (use any non-dairy milk for fasting days)
  • 1/2 cup sugar (adjust according to taste)
  • 4-5 green cardamom pods, crushed
  • Saffron strands (optional)
  • Chopped nuts for garnish (almonds, cashews, pistachios)


1. Rinse and Soak Sabudana:
  • Rinse the sabudana under cold water until the water runs clear to remove excess starch.
  • Soak the rinsed sabudana in enough water to cover them completely for at least 4 hours or overnight. This will soften the pearls and make them ready for cooking.
2. Prepare Mango Puree:
  • Peel and dice the ripe mangoes and remove the seeds.
  • Place the diced mangoes in a blender and blend until you get a smooth puree. Set aside for later use.
3. Cook Sabudana:
  • In a large saucepan, bring the milk to a gentle boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  • Once the milk comes to a boil, reduce the heat to low and add the soaked sabudana to the pan.
  • Simmer the sabudana in the milk, stirring occasionally, until they turn translucent and soft, about 15-20 minutes.
4. Add Mango Puree:
  • Once the sabudana are cooked, add the mango puree to the pan and mix well to combine.
  • Stir in the sugar and crushed cardamom pods, and continue to cook the kheer for another 5-10 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
5. Garnish and Serve:
  • Once the kheer reaches your desired consistency and sweetness, remove it from heat.
  • If using saffron strands, soak them in a tablespoon of warm milk for a few minutes and then add to the kheer for added flavor and aroma.
  • Garnish the mango sabudana kheer with chopped nuts of your choice (almonds, cashews, pistachios) for added crunch and texture.
  • Serve the kheer warm or chilled, as per your preference, and enjoy the delicious flavors of this vrat special dessert.


  • Make sure to use ripe and sweet mangoes for the best flavor in the kheer.
  • Adjust the sugar quantity according to your taste preference and the sweetness of the mangoes.
  • For a creamier texture, you can replace some of the milk with condensed milk or coconut milk.
  • Add a pinch of edible camphor (edible kapoor) for a unique flavor twist, if desired.
