Sabudana Khichdi

            Sabudana, also known as Tapioca Pearls, along with potato makes a great Khichdi. This recipe is great to have as a snack as well as for a meal. It is sufficiently filling and very tasty and hence, it is one of the most desired dish during fasting. I generally fast on Thursday, which means having only one full meal in a day. The other meal can be any faraal dish like Sabudana Khichdi or Sabudana Vada.

           Sabudana Khichdi is easy and fast to make. The only problem is it can't be a instant dish, since we need to soak the Sabudana for at least 2-3 hours.

And here is the quick and simple recipe for it:

  • 1 cup Sabudana (Tapioca Pearls)
  • 2 medium Potatoes (Boiled and chopped)
  • 1/4 cup Crushed Peanuts
  • 2 tbsp Chili-Ginger Paste
  • Chopped Cilantro
  • 3 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • Pinch of Asafoetida
  • Wash and soak the Sabudana in enough water to cover it for about two to three hours.
  • Then, drain off the excess water.
  • Heat some oil in a pan, add asafoetida and cumin seeds to it.
  • Once the cumin seeds start to crackle, add the chili paste. The chili paste can be adjusted according to the desired spiciness.
  • Now add the Potatoes and Sabudana. Add a little water if needed. 
  • Then add peanuts, salt, lemon juice, cilantro and mix well.
  • Let it simmer for 10 mins on a low to medium heat. Once the Sabudana pearls become translucent  we can be sure that they are done.
  • Sprinkle some cilantro and serve hot.

Hope you enjoy it!
