After trying out this recipe, don't forget to share your thoughts in the comments section below. Additionally, I have some tips to help you perfect your Sago Moong Dal Kheer.
Firstly, I recommend soaking and cooking the moong dal in a cooker. If you don't have a cooker, you can use a heavy-bottomed pan with enough water and cook the soaked moong dal until it's fully cooked. Be sure to avoid burning the dal at the bottom of the pan.
Secondly, if you're unsure about the purity of your jaggery, add 1/4 cup of water and bring it to a boil. Once it's dissolved in the water, strain it and add the jaggery syrup to the kheer. You can also replace the milk with coconut milk (1 cup of thin coconut milk and 1 cup of thick coconut milk).
Finally, be sure to follow the cooking instructions on the sago packaging.
