Fasting Vrat Sabudana Khichdi Recipe Instructions

  • Rinse sabudana under water until water turns clear. This is important to get rid of all the starch.
  • Transfer the rinsed sabudana to a large bowl and add 1 cup water to it. No more.
  • In the morning the sabudana would have soaked up all the water. But you still drain it using a colander just to get rid of any excess water.
  • To check if sabudana is ready to cook, press a pearl between your thumb and index finger. It should smash easily. Set it aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan on medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add the cumin seeds and let them sizzle for few seconds.
  • Then add the diced potatoes and cook for 3-4 minutes stirring often until potatoes are almost cooked. It’s important to dice the boiled potatoes small here so that cook quickly.
