Sabudana Khichdi

Sabudana Khichdi / Sago Khichdi is a popular dish during fasts. It is easy to prepare with just a small pre-preparation of soaking sago. This is a popular Maharastrian and Gujarati dish, made during fasts, as snacks, sunday evening time etc...

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

Wash sabudana in water and soak in water for almost 3 hours. Drain it properly. Once done, you will notice that sabudana has nicely got bulged from before. Allow it to drain fully without any water leftover, else the dish will become sticky.

Boil potato in pressure cooker for 5 whistles. Open once cooled. Peel the skin and cut in cubes.
In pan heat oil, add cumin seeds. Once it splutters, add green chili, curry leaves, and boiled cubed potatoes. Mix once.

Now add soaked sabudana, red chili powder and coarsely crushed peanuts. Mix.

Now sprinkle some water, lemon juice and mix. Cover and cook for 3 - 4 mins until sabudana is cooked and turns transparent.

Garnish with freshly chopped coriander leaves.

Serve with curd.

You can also add some freshly grated coconut before garnishing.

You can add full peanuts, instead of crushing it.
