Arabian Delight ( rice and sago kheer)

Arabian delight is a simple rice kheer with sago in it... there is a short story behind this dish....when i was in school there was a cooking competion i made this kheer and i had to give a unique name to this dish so i named it as ARABIAN DELIGHT the name it self was so different that made me won the first prize..and ofcourse the taste also days are the most unforgettable days in every one's life. ok let me come to the recipie so here are the ingredients 



  1. milk full cream - 2 litre
  2. rice - 1/2 cup
  3. sago - 1/4 cup
  4. sugar - 1 cup
  5. almonds and nuts chopped - 1/4cup


  1. first wash and soak sago in water for half an hour, next coarsely grind the rice in a mixer/blender wash and soak for an half an hour.
  2.  Take a deep bottom non-stick pan boil milk till it reduces and thickens. now add rice and cook when the rice is half done add the sago and cook further till rice and sago gets fully cooked now add the sugar and keep on stirring in simmer flame till the sugar gets dissolve completely.
  3.  switch off the flame add chopped almonds and cashews. 
  4. Allow it to cool and serve chill


  1. i used Egyptian rice as it gets cooked faster and thickens the milk , you can use any rice
  2. grinding the rice to one pulse is necessary 
  3. dont forget to soak the sago,you can also boil the sago in water add to milk
  4. continuous stirring is important
