ABOUT Sabudana Khichdi RECIPE

Sabudana Khichdi, though easy to make, it took me some time to master it. Here the recipe is suited for general mood and not just restricted to any festive occasion.The chewy texture and starchy taste of sago is complemented with the nutty flavor of peanuts and the tanginess of lime juice. It appeals to all age groups.
