Sabudana Kitchdi/Upma


sago kitchdi
Fasting or not, sabudana kitchdi is loved  by one and all. It's a popular snack that is healthy as well. The tapioca pearls, the English name of sabudana, are full of carbs and thus a good source of energy. Surprisingly, it makes a healthy alternative to carbonated drinks without any sweeteners or artificial chemicals.

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:

Ingredients

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
Roasted almonds

Procedure

  1. Soak sabudana in as much water as required to simply drown it. Do not flood the bowl with water.
  2. In the morning, drain sabudana and keep on a strainer for at least 10 minutes.
  3. Puree tomato.
  4. Take oil in a pan.
  5. Add jeera. Let it splutter.
  6. Add roasted almonds and curry leaves and enjoy the rustic aroma in your kitchen.
  7. Add tomato puree, chilly, and salt & sugar.
  8. Add potato cubed into small pieces. 
  9. Mix well until the masala is fried and coats potato well.
  10. Add sabudana pearls. Mix. Check for salt.
  11. Sprinkle lime juice and enjoy sabudana kitchdi while fasting or not.
This is one diet food you would want to try again and again. Do check the following tips to make sabudana pearls. Your sago kitchdi won't be sticky. Thanks to Chitra Balachander and Parul Bansal for these tips:

Refined Sugar-Free Quinoa Digestives: Fiber Rich, Nutrient Dense, Sugarless Quinoa Recipe

Have you heard of quinoa digestives? I did an Internet search to find it out, but couldn't trace any quinoa digestives recipe. Perhaps we have yet not moved to supergrains when it comes to digestives. When it comes to digestives, most of us can't think beyond whole wheat flour and oats. Perhaps dgestives require fiber-rich oats because it gives the biscuit the perfect digestives structure. I love oats so much so that I have compiled a collection of over 200 oats recipes. Now coming to quinoa digestives recipe, I have tried out too many digestives, including amaranth digestives, pistachio digestives, Mcvities digestives, and Nutri choice-like digestives. This time I wanted to skip whole wheat and include quinoa. Yes, if you remember, I have already shared a few quinoa recipes here, including quinoa nankhatais without baking soda/baking powder.

What I did next was exactly this!
My goal with each recipe is to get the better out of me!  Quinoa substitutes whole wheat
Yes, my dear…

Kid-Friendly Badam Oats Cookies: Sugarfree, Fiber Rich, Eggless

Recently, there is a Sunfeast advertisement on Moms Magic cookies. This has attracted my attention. So what happened next is history. As you already know me, the cookie big has bitten me badly, so I jumped into experimenting with badam cookies. I have never tasted these cookies from Sunfeast, as I do not buy outside biscuits these days. So the oats cookie recipe is the result of my own healthy baking experiment. Did the experiment disappoint?
Of course, not!

You have got to be a cookie lover to try out a new cookie every other day. My airfryer has made life easier for me, and I find it the best investment for my baking journey.

Ever since my airfryer homecoming, I have always chosen to go for airfryer cookies, and not touched my convection ever since. That's the beauty of airfryer baking.

Okay, so let's come back to the badam cookie recipe. Did I say this is a no raising agent cookie recipe?
