Today is “sankashti” so it is sabudana khichidi day. My kids love this so, it is also a ‘no complaints day.’
Please note that I have said that groundnuts and potatoes have to be peeled, in reality I don’t do it. I soak the potatoes in water; scrub them with a sock I have kept specifically for this purpose. The reason is generally under the peels the maximum nutrients are stored so if I peel them I am loosing them.
I grind the groundnuts with the chilli, lemon and sugar.
Also soak the sabudana, drain the water then add 1 tblspn of curd mix it( this tastes better), soak overnight or minimum of 8 hours.
Today since I was running behind schedule I have grated the potatoes.
In place of potatoes if use sweet potato, grate it in water after you wash them clean and use one more green chilli.
2-3 potatoes peeled and cut into fine bits.
3 cups sabudana/sago, wash & soak overnight.
¼ cup groundnuts roasted, peeled &coarsely ground.
1 green chilli, slit.
Juice of ½ lemon
½ tsp Sugar
2 tblspn coconut
Salt as per taste
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tblspn ghee
3-4 tblspn milk
Method:In the sabudana add groundnut powder, lemon, sugar, 1 ½ tblspn coconut and salt mix well.
Heat the ghee and add cumin seeds till they change colour.
Add the green chilli sauté.
Add potatoes a little salt, mix, cover and cook till cooked.
Now add the sabudana mixture and stir till well mixed.
Cover and cook for about 5 minutes.
Remove from the flame add milk cover and keep aside till serving time.
Garnish with coconut and coriander.
