Sabudana Khichdi

I developed love for sabudana khichdi when I was in Pune. In Maharashtra, it is a very common breakfast and there was one colleague of mine who used to bring it to office and share it with me. I was so much in love with it (and she knew it very well) that on my last day to office she brought a lunch box full of it and asked me to carry it with me and have it as my dinner. How can one refuse such a sweet gesture/offer, I accepted it gracefully 😉

After getting married, when I had to cook on my own, I also included it in my breakfast menu-easy and healthy. And yeah, tasty, ofcourse! 🙂

Ingredients:

Sago seeds (sabudana)-1 cup
Potato-1-2 tbsp (cut into small pcs.)
Peanut-1/4 cup (dry roasted and roughly crushed)
Peanut-1 tbsp (dry roasted)
Cumin seeds-1/4-1/2 tsp
Green chilli-1/4 tsp (finely cut)
Black pepper-1 pinch
Lemon juice-1/2-1 tbsp
Grated coconut-2 tsp (optional)
Powdered sugar-1 tsp (optional)

Method:

* Wash sago seeds 2-3 times with water and then soak it in 2 cups of water.
* After 1 hour drain excess water.
* Now cover with a lid and keep it overnight.
* If you have to make it the same day, soak it in sufficient water for 2-3 hours.
* Heat up oil in a wok and add cumin seeds.
* Now add potatoes and green chilli.
* Add little salt and let the potato turn soft.
* Now add sago seeds.
* After 1-2 minutes add crushed peanuts and salt.
* Cook till the sago seeds turn transparent.
* Now add lemon juice, peanuts, black pepper, grated coconut and sugar (I personaly do not like sugar but if you like it then go ahead!)
* Mix them well, turn off the stove.

Serve hot 🙂
