Indian foodies are all geared up for Sawan 2021. The month of Shravan starts from July 25 this year. Devotees pray to Lord Shiva during this holy month, and often observe fasts.

There are plenty of recipes which can be made during this period. If you too are set to observe fasting in the upcoming days, fret not. We have some of the easiest and yummiest of vrat-friendly recipes that serve the purpose and satiate your taste buds.

The entire month of Sawan is significant for the devotees of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. They throng the temples with their prayers and offerings, especially on the Mondays - referred to as Sawan Somvar. Many devotees observe ritualist fast on the first Somvar of Sawan or a string of 16 Mondays back-to-back (Solah Somvar ka vrat).

The food options have drastically reduced with the commencement of Sawaan month. If you are wondering what desserts you can easily whip up this month, we have a delicious and extremely easy recipe of Sabudana Kheer for you!

It is almost miraculous how you can make something as yummy as Sabudana Kheer with just a few ingredients. All you need is some Sabudana, water, milk, sugar and a little patience to make sure the milk thickens without burning.


·         ½ Cup Sabudana

·         1 Cup Water

·         3 ½ Cups Milk

·         ½ Cup Sugar

·         7-8 Cashews

·         2 Tbsps Raisins

·         ¼ Tsp Elaichi Powder (Cardamom)



Step 1

For this simple recipe, start by soaking your Sabudana in water. Let it soak for half an hour. Do not over soak it or it will get mashed while cooking.

Step 2

Take a pan (preferably with a thick bottom) and add milk to it. Let the milk heat a little.

Step 3

To the milk add the soaked Sabudana.

Step 4

Let it boil in medium flame. Keep stirring and do not let the milk stick to the pan.

Step 5

Boil till the milk reduces a little and your Sabudana turns translucent.

Step 6

Now, add sugar and stir. You can add the sugar and taste the milk after the sugar gets dissolved to see if you need more.

Step 7

Stir the kheer so that there are no sugar crystals left to dissolve. Make sure you stir gently or you might cause the Sabudana to mash.

Step 8

Leave the flame at the lowest and stir for 15 minutes.

Step 9

At this stage add the dry fruits and stir for another five minutes and your delicious Sabudana Kheer is ready to serve!

Step 10

Take it out in bowls, garnish with chopped dry fruits and serve hot!
