Farali Sabudana (sago) Khichadi

Sabudana (sago) khichadi is widely  preferred Indian breakfast during fasting days. It is generally prepared during Navratri, Shivratri, Janmashtami and Akadashi. Soaked sabudana pearls stir fried with boiled potatoes, green chilly, ginger, crushed peanutes and cumin seeds tastes wonderful.

Sabudana khichadi can be prepared by two types of  sabudana (sago) large and small. I used small sabudana pearls in this recipe.

1) Wash sabudana pearls properly before and after soaking, otherwise it becomes sticky.

2) Check sabudana is soaked properly or not take one pearl between your fingers, if it mashed without any effort it is properly soaked.
