Ideal for fasts this preparation of soaked sago tossed with spices and boiled potatoes is an all-time hit. Sago pearl khichadi is one of most widely preferred and delicious Indian breakfast and fasting food for festivals like Navratri and Shivratri. Sago khichdi can be prepared using two types of sabudana (sago), large and small.
When you think of what you can eat during a fast the first thing that pops into the mind is definitely sabudana khichdi. Soaked sabudana pearls stir-fried with crushed peanuts, boiled potatoes, chillies, cumin seeds, coconut and fresh coriander – all ingredients that are 100 percent permitted during a fast. A plate of garmagaram sabudana khichdi eaten with some chilled sweetened yogurt can taste so good that it unfair to limit this delicious preparation to just fasting days.
