Spicy Sabudana Khichdi Recipe

By | Published | Khichdi, Vegetarian | 12 Comments

2 cup sago (tapioca),
1 potato,
3-4 green chilies,
1 teaspoon lemon juice (optional),
1 small piece ginger (optional),
1/2 cup peanut powder,
2-3 teaspoon sugar,
salt to taste,
1 tbspoon oil,
2 teaspoon cumin seeds,
coconut and coriander leaves for garnishing. 

1. Soak sago in water. Drain the water and keep it aside for half an hour to one hour (Depending on the quality, sometimes the sago needs to be soaked overnight in a little bit of water).
2. Now add peanut powder, salt, sugar and lemon juice and mix.
3. Cut green chilies into small pieces and grate ginger.
4. Heat oil or ghee in a pan.
5. Add cumin seeds, potato pieces and chilies.
6. As soon as potatoes are tender, add sago and stir.
7. Cook uncovered for sometime and keep mixing so that sago will not stick to the bottom.
8. Garnish with coconut and coriander leaves. Serve hot.

Tip: As mentioned above, add all the ingredients to the soaked sago before cooking.

While making khichdi, do not cover the pan, else it will turn into an elastic ball. Khichdi tastes excellent if tossed continuously while cooking.

Variation: Try something different, yet tasty by adding grated boiled potato instead of the chopped one.

    I made the khichadi today. Added Planters dry roasted peanuts 1:2 ratio to the soaked saboodana. Did not add ginger. I soaked the saboodana overnight. Used ghee and jeera to fry the boiled patatoes and then the saboodana. Garnished with coconut and coriander leaves. Everyone loved it!
