Sabudana Khichdi is very commonly prepared in many households during fasting days. It is a very popular dish made of sago, potato, roasted peanuts and few basic seasonings. However, I added few chopped veggies to make it more healthy. This is a simple breakfast dish that can also be enjoyed for brunch, snack or as a lunch box meal too. So check out the step by step pictorial recipe to prepare it.
Sabudana. also known as Sago or Tapioca Pearls is low in fat, but rich in starch. Veggies and peanuts are added to enhance its nutritional benefits. You can add any other veggies of your choice, other than the ones I have used, to make it more healthy. Sabudana is very versatile as it can also be used to make vada, kheer or porridge.
