In a pan add milk and cook till the milk comes to boil. We don't need to reduce it just boil it.
Drain water from sabudana (tapioca seeds) and add in this boiling milk. Cook for 3-4 minutes while stirring continuously over medium to low flame. When sabudana or sago pearls turns translucent that means they are ready.
Add sugar, cardamom powder, choped cashews, almonds and raisins, mix well. Cook for 3-4 minutes more so that sugar melts completely and pudding will start to thicken. Do not cook it too much as it will get more thick after it gets cold.
Turn off the flame and let the kheer come to the room temperature.
Add mango pulp in the sago pudding, mix well. Remember if sabudana kheer is not cold while adding the mangoes the milk can be curdled.
Put the bowl in the milk to chill the pudding well.
In a serving glass or bowl add a layer of pudding, then layer of fresh fruits ( I used pomegranate and chopped mangoes) then again add a layer of pudding.
Top with chopped mangoes and pomegranate, serve.
