Sago Custard & Jelly Shots ~ Day 26

Sago Custard & Jelly Shots

Sago Custard is a slightly different version of a Sabudana Kheer. You really do not have to make the custard from scratch, instead just use the ready-made custard powder. I make this more often during Ramadan as an iftar dish, which turns out to be a healthy dessert with lots of sabudana in it. I have even added two flavors of jelly to it to make the custard more flavorful. If you wish you can even add fresh fruits and nuts of your choice. When you crave for a simple and comforting dessert even if there is no guest, you can treat yourself to this Sago Custard & Jelly Shots.

Another tip I would like to highlight with this dessert is that instead of setting it in a large serving dish, you can set the dessert in small shot glasses which are see-through and disposable. This tip can be practical when you have a large number of guests and you will save yourself from the chore of washing too many individual serving bowls and the big serving dish. 

I hope you are enjoying all my recipes in my 31 Day Blogging Challenge. Comment and let me know the feedback and also I welcome suggestions from you in this regard.
