Tapioca Sagoo Pulao - Nice and tasty

My mom used to say, Children couldn't grow stronger without eating Sagoo. But we didn't like! She used to feed us sagoo by making this. I carry it on with my children! It's very easy to make. Looks nice, like clear crystal. Tastes equally nice. Favorite with all children to elder.
Make it in 5 minutes either for children's tiffin or afternoon snacks. Everyone will be happy.
