Sabudana khichadi is a tricky dish because sabudana is tricky in itself. However by soaking and cooking it properly, we can get it right.The seasoning… you can also add some fried peanuts, pomegranate seeds, grated coconut etc.Sabudana preparations are very common during fasts but because they are very delectable.The main problem with sabudana khichadi is to get its texture correct.                                                                                                                                 COOKING TIPS:

  • Wash it properly. To do so take sabudana in a colander and run under cold water till you see clear water.
  • Soak it in just enough water that the sabudana gets soaked.
  • Soaking time totally depends on the quality of sabudana. Some are done in 3-4 hours, some take longer. If you know your sabudana well soak accordingly otherwise soak the sabudana overnight.
  • Away do the smash test before using sabudana. Take a pearl and mash between the finger tips. It should mash completely.
  • Before use, spread on a kitchen towel and leave for 10 minutes.
  • Don’t cut down the quantity of peanuts.
