Sago & Kiwi Payasam

After a big break I am back here again. How are  you all doing? 

Recently I received a complimentary box of Gold kiwi fruits from Zespri.  I have tried the green ones from Zespri they are so fresh and yummy. This time it was a box of gold Kiwi, they were so firm from out but very sweet, fresh  and yummy, I have never had a gold kiwi earlier and this was the first time I got to taste this delicious fruit. I loved it more than the green one.

Zespri Kiwifruit contain so many vitamins and minerals, they’re truly bursting with natural goodness. The powerful combination of vitamins C and E, potassium, folate, and dietary fibre, gives Zespri Kiwifruit one of the highest nutrient density and adequacy scores compared to other common fruit.  I had made this  payasam with kiwi pulp, it was so delicious.


Sago  - ½ cup

Milk  full cream – 2 cups

Sugar ½ cup

Cashew & Raisins – 8 each

Cardamom – 2 nos

Ghee – 1 tsp just to fry the raisins and cashew

Water – 2 or 2 ½ cups (as much as you need)

Zespri gold Kiwi  pulp – 1 cup

Zespri gold kiwi chopped – 2 nos for garnish
