According to Ayurvedic medicine, sago porridge can be an effective and simple food to "cool and balance one's body heat" when taking strong medicine or antibiotics.
Sago - 2 Tbsp
Ghee - 1 tsp
Milk - 300 ml
Sugar - 3 - 4 tsp
Saffron - 6 strands
Almonds - 2
Have all your ingredients handy.
Heat ghee in a thick bottomed vessel and before it becomes too hot add the sago pearls (Javvarisi) and stir fry 3 seconds. They will start popping in the pan.
Add milk in one go and simmer until the sago pearls become transparent.
Just after you have added milk, take 2 teaspoonfuls once the milk is warm and add it to the saffron.
Add sugar and stir to dissolve. Simmer for 2 minutes.
Crush the soaked saffron with the back of a spoon and add it to the milk.
Garnish with sliced almonds.
