Sabudana Khichdi

Ingredients to make Sabudana Khichdi

  • sabudana ( Sago ) - 1 cup
  • Roasted groundnuts - 3-4 tbsp
  • Boiled potato - 1 medium sized
  • green chillies - 2
  • cumin ( Jeera ) - 1/2 tsp
  • asafoetida powder ( Heeng ) - 1/2 tsp
  • sugar - 1/2 tsp
  • olive oil - 2 tbsp
  • ghee - 1/2 tsp
  • salt to taste

How to make Sabudana Khichdi

  1. Wash the sago ( sabudana ) twice or thrice in running water to remove excess starch.
  2. Soak the washed sabudana in just enough water to cover it for at least 6 hrs.
  3. Dice the potato and green chillies and keep them aside.
  4. In a wok pour the olive oil and add the cumin seeds when the oil gets warm.
  5. Once the cumin seeds splutter, add asafoetida powder, diced green chillies and diced potatoes.
  6. Saute this for a couple of minutes.
  7. Add the soaked sabudana which now should have absorbed all the water and become plump but not sticky.
  8. Saute till the white sabudana starts to appear glass-like which is about 3-5 minutes.
  9. Add salt and mix thoroughly.
  10. Coarsely grind the roasted groundnuts and sugar.
  11. Add the groundnut mix to the sabudana and mix thoroughly with a light hand so as not to mash the sabudana.
  12. Take it off the flame and add the ghee.
  13. Serve warm.

My Tip:

Traditionally it is made completely in ghee as ghee is considered to be very pure. During a fast one aims to eat food that is fresh, pure and fit for the gods as it is mostly offered to God before being eaten. But with most of us counting calories olive oil is a good substitute.
