Healthy, Low oil, non-sticky, simple Sabudana Khichdi Recipe ~ #FoodieFriday

Today I will be sharing a very simple and healthy one-pot recipe with you that I love eating all year round. Sabudana Khichdi is very popular in India and is specially eaten during fasts. However, this easy to make dish can be made anytime and enjoyed without the hassle of requiring too many ingredients to prepare it!

Made using soaked Sabudana, in my variant I have used minimal ingredients, spices and very little oil making it very healthy without compromising its delicious taste.

How to soak the Sabudana?

In order to have Sabudana where each pearl is seen separately and no clumps form while cooking, it is essential to soak it using the below steps.

1) Wash the Sabudana under running water until any excess starch gets removed and you see clear pearls.

2) Soak the Sabudana in 1:1 ratio. That is if you are soaking 1 cup of Sabudana then use 1 cup of water to soak it in.

3) Let the Sabudana soak overnight.

4) In the morning you will see that no water remains in the Sabudana bowl but still wash and drain any excess water using a strainer or colander.

5) Check if the Sabudana is ready to cook by pressing a pearl between your thumb and index finger. It should smash easily.
