While sabudana kitchdi is a breeze to make, it is tasty and healthy. Additionally, it can be enjoyed during fasting days, especially Navratri. Low in fat and protein, sabudana or sago is mixed with high protein and fiber foods for a balanced diet.
Soaking of sago reduces the amount of starch and makes it less sticky.
You may grind sago and then use its starch for thickening gravy.
But of you're looking for sabudana kitchdi recipe with sago shining as pearls, here is my take on this fasting recipe:
1/2 tsp oil/ghee (clarified butter)
1 bowl sabudana (soaked overnight)
1/2 tsp jeera (cumin seeds)
Few curry leaves
1 boiled potato
1 tomato pureed (I did not puree)
Salt as per taste
pinch of sugar
1 green chilly
- Soak sabudana in as much water as required to simply drown it. Do not flood the bowl with water.
- In the morning, drain sabudana and keep on a strainer for at least 10 minutes.
- Puree tomato.
- Take oil in a pan.
- Add jeera. Let it splutter.
- Add roasted almonds and curry leaves and enjoy the rustic aroma in your kitchen.
- Add tomato puree, chilly, and salt & sugar.
- Add potato cubed into small pieces.
- Mix well until the masala is fried and coats potato well.
- Add sabudana pearls. Mix. Check for salt.
- Sprinkle lime juice and enjoy sabudana kitchdi while fasting or not.
