Sabudana Khichdi / Pulao

Long time back, almost say in 2007-08, when I was doing MBA in Pune, we (me and my two friends) used to visit a breakfast snacks corner near our college. Every Monday morning used to be special for us, because every Monday sabudana khichdi used to be the morning breakfast at the snacks corner.

The sabudana khichdi with sweet curd, hhmm awesome, really tasty. Even today whenever I remember those days, I cannot resist making the khichdi.

Here we go with the recipe,

Sabudana is the major ingredient used during fasting / Vrat. Sabudana Khichdi recipe comes from Maharashtrian cuisine and it tastes heaven with sweet curd. Unlike Sabudana khichdi, you can also check my recipe sabudana roll, which can also be made during fast or vrat.

Ingredients

  • Sabudana (sago) – 1 cup (Soaked overnight and drained)
  • Potato – 1 medium (boiled, peeled and cut into small pieces)

  • Green Chillies – 2 (finely chopped)
  • Cumin seeds – ½ tsp
  • Lemon Juice – 1tsp
  • Coriander Leaves – few (chopped)
  • Senda namak – To taste

Method:

  1. Soak sabudana overnight with just enough water to cover it (minimum 6hrs of soaking is required). Drain it in the morning. (Soaking is the most important part of the recipe)
  2. Heat oil in a wok. Add cumin seeds. Allow them to crackle. Add boiled potato pieces. Saute for few seconds and add green chillies.
  3. Add sabudana and sauté for a minute or till the sabudana pearls become transparent.

Sabudana (Sago) is the major ingredient used during fasting / Vrat. Since Navratri is on, I thought of preparing few recipes of sabudana. Today I am sharing the recipe of Sabudana Roll, a crisp and delicious snack which can be served in morning or evening snack or even as a side dish in main course. Sabudana Roll recipe comes from Maharashtrian cuisine and it tastes heaven with sweet curd.
