Sabudana Khichdi

A quick Maharastrian brekki recipe which is also made during fasting days. It is a  very easy peesy recipe but the important part of the recipe is the type of sabudana you use. Earlier i have tried with the the regular sabudana but my khichdi turned out to be a messy and gooey mixture, but now i use Nylon sabudana and prepare them on a nonstick pan and they turn to to be great.


Sabudana Khichdi.

Serves 2


Nylon Sabudana (Sago Pearls) 3/4 cup

Potato 1 big

G.chillies 2-3

Salt to taste

Oil 2tbsp

Peanuts 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp


Soak sabudan for 10 mins and drain all the excess water and keep aside for 1/2 hour.

Dry roast peanuts till light brown and when cooled grind them to a coarse powder.

Chop potatoes into slices or cubes.

Finely chop G.chillies.

Heat oil in a pan, add the 1tbsp peanuts and then g.chilli and potatoes.

Add little salt and saute them till the potatoes are cooked which can take about 2 mins.

Add sabudana, salt and the peanut powder and mix nicely.

Cover with a lid and cook for 5 mins on a slow flame.

Keep stirring occasionally and when done serve hot  with a bowl of ghee.

Pinks Notes

Add or decrease the number of g.chillies according to your taste.

I would suggest making this in a thick kadai or better in a non stick pan,the sago wont stick to the bottom of the pan.

Aloha till next post. 🙂
