Sabudana Khichadi Recipe

Sabudana khichadi is an Indian fasting dish made from soaked sabudana. This is the first dish comes in our mind whenever we are planning for fasting during Maha-Shivratri, Navratri or Ekadashi. Sabudana contains carbohydrate and little amount of proteins, vitamins and minerals which makes its more balanced meal during fasting days.

    Transfer the washed and drained sabudana to a casserole and sprinkle with little water, just enough to ensure that they are damp. Cover the casserole tight and leave them overnight.
