Sagu Jaava/ SaguBiyam – a Healthy Drink

Sagu Jaava (not Java Techies  :-) ) is a healthy and nutritional summer drink. This drink reduces heat in the body and it is a great remedy for tongue inflammation ( doesn’t make any difference for java Programmers :-) ).
My mom used to prepare this drink regularly in summer and it tastes delicious.
Sagu Jaava is very simple and prepared by using Sagu or Sabudan, water, milk, sugar and salt.

Ingredients:
Sabudan/ Sagu biyam/Sago – 3 to 4 tsps
Water – 4 cups
Sugar – ½ cup
Salt - a pinch
Milk – ½ cup
Cardamom powder – a pinch
Preparation
  • Soak Sabudan in water for 30 minutes.
  • In a cooking vessel take water and boil it.
  • Add only sabudan by straining water from it to the boiled water.

  • Cook for 5 minutes add sugar, salt to it.
  • Stir well and add milk to it and boil it for another 5 minutes.
  • Cool and serve it.

  2. I prepare only sago payasam, this is new to me. Sago is known for its cooling effects on the body,so this drink is apt for summer.
