Sabudana khichdi, commonly known as sago khichdi is an Indian dish made from soaked sabudana or tapioca pearls. It is a fasting food which is prepared during fasting like Navratra, Sankashti etc. This is a staple food in western part of our country. Apart from fasting food this is an easy to make snacking option. The main part is soaking the pearls in right way. I prefer soaking it over night or minimum 4 – 5 hours for better taste.

The method I’ve mentioned here is typical Maharashtrian method of Sabudana Khichdi as I came across this dish in Maharashtra. This is dish completely filling e.g. one serving will keep you full for 4 to 5 hours. Generally its served with curd or sweet curd. I don’t use some other ingredients like curry leaves, coriander leaves. So I have skipped them in the recipe. You can add if you eat them.
Sabudana is full of carbohydrate and energy and hence a great food option for toddlers and kids. My kid love this sabudana khichdi. So when I prepare for him I skip green chillies. For toddlers you can prepare sweet porridge from sabudana. This is a full of carbohydrate and hence is a source of energy and one of the best food for kids.
So lets make this traditional Maharashtrian style sabudana khichdi.
