Cookery: Sabudana Khichdi

Sabudana khichdi is one of my favorite breakfast dishes. It's filling, delicious and a little unhealthy as well - my idea of the perfect breakfast!

And since i made it after a really long time today, i over-indulged!

I like it for You can make it as an evening snack as well.

{Recipe for two}

Soak 1/2 cup sabudana / tapioca pearls for 3 hours. Drain the water completely and let the sabudana sit on a strainer or colander for a few minutes.

Next, crush the peanuts using a mortar-pestle. (I hate doing that so i just use the mixer, taking care to not grind it too fine).

Heat 3 teaspoon oil in a wok. Add 1 teaspoon cumin seeds. When it crackles, lower the flame and add the crushed peanuts. Fry this on a low flame till the peanut starts to brown. Add two-three green chili and 6-7 curry leaves. Stir.

Add 1 chopped potato. Stir. Cover with a lid and leave to cook on low flame. When the potato is cooked, add a chopped tomato. Stir in a little salt. Cover and cook.

Now add the sabudana pearls and salt. Mix and cook on low flame for 3-4 minutes till the sabudana pearls look like they are starting to melt / till that start becoming translucent. Mix 2 teaspoon of ground cumin powder.

Turn the gas off, add chopped coriander. Serve hot.

Do you make sabudana khichdi the same way? My friend Raam's mother makes it in a very different style but that's delicious as well... i will try and find the receipt on her next visit.

Have a lovely week y'all... Hugs!
