How to make Sabudana Khichdi

sabudana khichdi

A perfect snack to go with evening tea and you can even have this tasty snack in your breakfast too. Yay!! 😀 The recipe name is Sabudana Khichdi , but I don’t like calling it Khichdi (Because it’s one of my favourite snack from all time :p). This authentic recipe is very simple and flavorful.

In India, this vegan and the gluten-free recipe is very popular, especially during the Navratri fasting season. This is one of my favourite recipe.

Let’s have a look at how this tasty khichdi is made:-

Ingredients Required:

  • 500 grams or 2 cups Sabudana before soaking
  • 6 cups water for soaking
  • 6 tablespoon oil and oil for frying
  • 1 teaspoon black mustard seeds (rai)
  • 2 teaspoon red chilli powder
  • 3-4 curry leaves* (optional)
  • 2 medium-sized potatoes peeled and cubed
  • 1/4 cup roasted peanuts *
  • Salt to taste (sendha namak for upvaas)
  • 2 Lemon or to taste
  • Fistful of Chopped cilantro (dhaniya)

How to make Sabudana Khichdi:

  • Soak around 500 gm Sabudana in water for around 4-6 hours or until it gets soft.
  • Then 15 minutes before you’re making sabudana khichdi spread it on a towel or a cotton cloth so that excess water can be soaked.
  • Then after 15 minutes put Sabudana into a vessel and add salt as per taste, red chilli powder to it. And mix well.
  • Now Dice 2 medium size potatoes in small rectangular shape and fry it in hot oil
  • Dry roast some groundnuts for few minutes
  • Remove them from the flame, after few minutes groundnuts will become crisp then crush the nuts gently using mortar and pestle
  • After that in a deep pot heat some oil and add 1 tablespoon of brown mustard seeds and wait till it starts popping.
  • Now add chopped green chillies, crushed groundnuts, fried potatoes, and finally sabudana into this. Mix well. And let sabudana cook for 7-8 minutes. Mixing well after every few minutes.
  • Finally, garnish it with some freshly chopped coriander and serve hot.
