Sago,sabudana,javarisi,or tapioca pearls is a
lovely breakfast to make and serve too.
I have posted sago khichidi before, and this is
an addition to the breakfast list.
Wholesome and healthy breakfast!
Please do not use the small sago.Use only the
medium sized sago for khichidi .Small sago is
best for payasam or kheer .
To make khichidi you have to pre-soak for
minimum 5-6 hours, or overnight.Always
remember to wash and then soak,as the sago
will swell and absorb the water,and no water
will be required in the cooking.
To the recipe now ( 1 cup =100-150gm)
1 cup sago ( washed and soaked overnight)
A handful of roasted peanuts
Few roasted peanuts+1 tsp chilli flakes +1/2 tsp
cummin seeds ( coarsely powdered)
2-3 boiled,peeled potatoes
1/4 tsp turmeric
3-4 tbsp ghee+oil
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
I tsp ginger chopped
2 green chillies
Heat oil,and add the ingredients for tempering
Add turmeric and salt.
Now add the soaked sago,and cook on a low
flame covered for 5-7 minutes.
Now add the potatoes and the peanuts + peanut
Mix well ,cover and simmer cook for another
2-3 minutes .
