Sabudana Khichdi

How to make Sabudana Khichdi

Sabudana is an Indian name for Tapioca seeds or Sago. In Maharashtra it is consumed on the day you are fasting. well fast and consuming food don't go hand in hand right? here is a thing sabudana is one of those Hollywood celebrities oops Holyfood .. I meant. just kidding. But really in my kitchen shelf Sabudana has made to the VIP isle as its PJ's all time fav..  So there you go I add that extra ingredient called LOVE while making this .. still we have to see what else we add right? move on guys .......

Here is what we need -

1 cup sabudana
1 medium size potato
2 tbs shredded coconut
1 spoon cumin seeds
3 tbs roasted peanut powder
2 tbs oil/ghee
2 green chilies
salt per taste
lemon juice (optional)

What's Next

Rinse sabudana 3 times. Soak it in the water for 4-5 hours. Make sure the water level is JUST above the sabudana layer. after soaking it should be separated in each single dana(seed). If its too dry sprinkle a spoonful of water.

You could boil the potato or just fry it on the oil. I prefer frying in the oil instead boiling as I don't like sticky khichdi.

In a heavy bottom pan add oil. Once hot add cumin seeds. chop green chilies to small pieces. add it once cumin seeds turn brown. Peel and cut potato in half and then thin slice it. add it to the pan.

Make sure you keep stirring it as it could burn fast. It is necessary to cook it uncovered.

In 5 minutes add sabudana to it and then add roasted peanut powder.

Roasted peanut powder - dry roast the peanuts in the heavy bottom pan on a medium heat. Stir it every few seconds. switch off once peanuts change its color to slight brown. Let it cool off. Peel and make coarse powder in the blender.

Add salt, coconut and cover the pan for a few minutes. Add some lemon juice at the end. serve hot.

you would wanna fast again and again .. enjoy!!
