Sabudana Khichdi is a perfect food for those on a fast or vrat – but generally wiped off by others in the family who are not on a fast also, because it is so irresistibly tasty! Its also well known as a faraal food.

The chewy texture and starchy taste of sabudana is so beautifully complemented by the nutty flavour of coarsely powdered peanuts, and balanced by the tangy lemon juice, making this khichdi soothing to the taste-buds, yet very tempting too.

For a complete faraali meal serve the sabudana khichdi along with Rajgira Paneer Paratha, Peanut Kadhi and Shakarkand Ka Halwa.
