Sabudana which is known as Sago in English is an ingredient highly used during fasts in India. But how many of us really know anything about it? Do we even know how is it made? Let me tell you. Sago is a starch extracted from the spongy centre of various tropical palm stems. The largest supply of Sago comes from Southeast Asia particularly Indonesia and Malaysia. People use Sago to make pancakes, pudding and in India, we make vadas, khichdi, etc. majorly dishes for fast. Today, we are going to make Sabudana khichdi. You can check the recipe for Sabudana Vadas in the below link.
2 Tablespoon Oil/Tel
2 Boiled Potatoes/Aloo
2 Green Chillies/Hari Mirch
1 cup Sago/Sabudana
1 cup Peanuts/Sing
¼ Teaspoon Jeera/Cumin Seeds
¾ Teaspoon Himalayan Rock Salt/Senda Namak
Some Coriander/Hara Dhanya to Garnish
In Khichdi, you can add whole peanuts also. But we dont like whole peanuts.
So firstly, we roast them.
Then, we crush the peanuts in a mixer enough to maintain its crunchiness. We are not suppose to make a powder here.
To prepare Khichdi, the first step after crushing the peanuts will be to chop the potatoes and chillies. You dont have to make too small or too large pieces of potatoes. Potatoes have a different taste. It adds a unique flavour to the dish. So we have to make pieces large enough to feel that flavour.
Now, heat the oil in a pan.
Once it is hot, add Cumin seeds and Chopped Chillies.
You have to fry this for 2 seconds.
Now add potatoes and peanuts and mix them properly.
After this, you need to add lemon and then salt.
Finally, add Sago and mix it properly.
Lastly, sprinkle some finely chopped Coriander Leaves to garnish.
Your Sabudana Khichdi is ready…
Always keep crushed coconut in the house. It helps you to make dishes instantly.
Soak Sago for about 4 hours before preparing the dish
