What is Maharashtrian Style Sabudana Khichadi?

Sabudana khichadi is a flavorful preparation using sago (sabudana) along with peanuts and a handful of other basic ingredients. Maharashtrian style sabudana khichadi is a simpler version of sabudana khichadi. It is mildly flavored and gives such a pleasant break from the regular sabudana khichadi.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Maharashtrian Style Sabudana Khichadi Recipe

Of course, properly soaked sabudana is indispensable for any sago preparation. In the post for sabudana khichadi, I have explained the dos and don’ts for it. Sabudana khichadi has been flavored with cumin seeds (jeera). Peanuts are indispensable for any sabudana khichadi, I mean I think so. However, this recipe treats them a bit different. Roasted peanuts are not powdered or ground completely, instead, either a combination of wholes and powdered peanuts is used or while grinding care is taken that there should be a coarse mix. Potatoes, green chilies, coriander leaves, lemon juice are some fresh ingredients used for the Maharashtrian Style Sabudana Khichadi recipe. Other than these salt and sugar have been added. No other spices are used and this simplicity makes this recipe so special.sabudana khichadi recipe

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
