Sabudana Khichdi is a popular Indian breakfast/ appetiser recipe made with Tapioca Pearls.
Sago Seeds/ Tapioca Pearls are gently marinated with coarsely grounded Peanut mix and then sautéed with peanuts, chilli, curry leaves, cumin seeds and potato.
In a mixer jar, add peanuts, 6-7 curry leaves, 1 green chilly and blend until coarse.
Heat oil or ghee in a pan, add cumin seeds. Once they sizzle, add 3 tbsp roasted peanuts, curry leaves and green chillies. Saute for a minute.
Add diced potatoes and saute in high. Cook for 2 minutes. Cover and cook for another 5-6 minutes, until nearly done.
Now add the marinated Sabudana/ Sago Seeds, salt & sugar. Cook for just about 3-4 minutes until tapioca pearls are translucent. Stir gently to mix well. Remember not to over cook as the sabudana will start becoming a lump.
