Sago or Sabudana is made from the starch extracted from the pith (center) of the sago palm stems. Sago pearls are tasteless but when cooked balances well with other ingredients in making a delicious dish. Sago can be cooked in various ways. Any dish made with Sago or sabudana is good for kids as it helps in boosting their energy. Sabudana  is mostly prepared by Hindus during fasting. It is soaked in water until it puffs up and becomes soft and then cooked with various spices and vegetables.

But one must keep in mind that the soaking process of the sabudana is the key to making a good Khichdi or else it will become gooey. In India, it is widely used in preparing the sabudana kheer (sago pudding or payasam), sago gruel or soups, sagu dosasabudana roti,sabudana vada and upma varieties. Sabudana soup or gruel is an excellent alternative to carbonate drinks as it gives instant energy without any chemicals or artificial sweeteners. Ragi and Sago Payasam is an exceptional dish that graces any formal or informal occasions. I am sure that after knowing so much of this dish, you would surely try preparing this recipe out or else you will be missing on the delectable and exotic taste of traditional desserts.
