Green Sabudana Khichadi

Sabudana Khichadi (sago pearls) is popular snack at the time of fast. Green Sabudana khichadi is a twist to the regular one. Sago pearls tempered with cumin & green paste (green chillies & coriander) along with boiled potatoes.




Ingredients


One cup Sabudana ( sago)

1/2 cup coarsely ground roasted peanuts

1 large cubed boiled potato

3-4 green chilies

Handful coriander leaves

1/2 tsp cumin seeds

2 tbsp Desi ghee (Sajuk tup)

Salt to taste


Method


Soak sabudana for one hour in water .Strain in after an hour in a vessel for 2-3 more hrs. All the water should be soaked by then. Sometimes this depends on the quality of sabudana. Some sabudana takes more time to soak. When pressed between two fingers it should feel soft and dry. This indicates that the sabudana is well soaked for khichadi. Too much moisture makes the khichadi sticky.


Mix the coarse peanuts into sabudana & add some salt. Coarsely grind green chilies and coriander leaves for the green color and keep aside.


Heat ghee in a pan. Add cumin seeds, green paste & saute it. Now add boiled potato & saute for a while. Add some salt for the potatoes.


Now add the prepared sabudana in the pan. Gently mix till the sabudana becomes transparent. This should take 2-3 minutes. Take care it doesn't stick to the sides of the pan (non stick pans work best)


Garnish with fresh coconut or lime according to taste. Sabudana Khichadi is ready within no time !!
