Sabudana Khichdi | Sago Khichdi ~ Fasting Recipe

 Sago Khichdi" is a very popular Indian snack often enjoyed for breakfast, during fasting, or as a light meal. Sago or Sabudana, also known as Pearl Sago, is a whole-grain similar to tapioca; small white seeds that become soft and spongy when soaked in water and turn translucent when cooked. Sabudana Khichdi is one of my all-time favorite recipes, where these sago grains are mixed with boiled potatoes, peanuts and sauteed along with curry leaves and spices. So here's a tried-and-tested recipe to make a delicious and crunchy Sago Khichdi.
