Sabudana Khichadi

Best Blogger Tips

This is a typical Maharashtrian dish that my wife has mastered over the years. It tastes great and is very easy to make. This usually makes for a good snack time treat, especially on a rainy day.
Ingredients :
Sabudana (Sago) (Tapioca) - 1 Cup
Green Chillies - Slit/Finely chopped or roughly chopped - 2 No.s
Groundnuts (Peanuts) - Roasted and powdered coarsely - 1/2 cup
Potato - Boiled, peeled and diced - 1 No.
Onion - Chopped - 1 No.
Lemon juice - 2 Tblsp. (10ml.)
Corriander(Cilantro) - finely chopped - 10 gm
Red Chilli Powder - 10 gm
Salt - To Taste
Oil - 20 Ml.
1. Wash & soak Sabudana in water for minimum 2 hrs.
2. Drain water after soaking for required time.
3. Heat Oil. Add in Onions and Chillies.
4. Fry till onions turn translucent.
5. Add in diced potatoes and stir well.
6. Add in drained Sabudana and mix gently.
7. Add in powdered groundnuts and red chilli powder alongwith salt.Mix well.
8. Garnish with Corriander leaves and sprinkle Lemon juice on top.
9. Serve hot.

Optional - Several households also add in Hing (Asafoetida) , Mustard seeds and Cumin seeds at the beginning once oil is hot.
Most also add in grated coconut while finishing the cooking.

Twist - Something I tried out a long time back. You might want to experiment. Get a few barquettes (boat shaped short pastry). Layer a little chilli sauce or Catsup and put in a spoonful of the khichadi in the barquette. Put in some grated cheese on top. Microwave till cheese melts a little and serve as an appetiser.
