Fasting Food - Sabudana Khichdi

Sabudana Khichdi
This is the favorite breakfast of everyone at home during the navratri fasting. It’s basically a maharashtrian snack, but as we can consume sabudana (Sago or Tapioca) during these fasts, this khichdi makes for a good option for a meal or just the breakfast. Sabudana is very versatile ingredient and you can make a variety of dishes using sabudana and potato combination, such as this khichdi, wadas, cutlet, and kheer as a dessert as well.
