Sabudana Khichdi Maharashtrian Style

Sabudana Khichdi Maharashtrian Style is an easy, simple yet extremely tasty and a filling dish, that is  usually made during breakfast or during fasting times. This is the Maharastrian style in which lots of peanuts are crushed and added. I have also made Gujarati version of the Sabudana Khichdi.

Sabudana / sago 1 cup
Green Chili 1 finely chopped
Peanuts, roasted and coarsely crushed, 1/2 cup
Oil / Ghee 1 tbsp
Cumin seeds 1 tsp
Curry leaves few
Salt as per taste
Freshly chopped Coriander leaves few
Water 2 cups to soak and little to sprinkle

Wash sabudana in water and soak in water for almost 3 to 4 hours. Soak with enough water covering sabudana. Dont add water above the level. After 3 to 4 hours, the sabudana has nicely got bulged from before and the water is all absorbed. 

Now in a pan heat oil, add cumin seeds. Once it splutters, add green chili, curry leaves and saute.

Now add crushed peanuts, mix once and add soaked sabudana and salt, mix well, cover and cook for around 3 to 4 minutes. If needed, just sprinkle some water. 

Garnish with freshly chopped coriander leaves.

Serve with curd.
