Tapioca sago is commonly known as Sabudana which is a carbohydrate rich, low fat, low protein supplement that can be used for preparing snacks, kheer etc. Sabudana is a must have ingredient in your kitchen if you are vegetarian. You can make lots of dishes using this simple yet nutritious ingredient.The first thing that comes to our mind when we think of what to eat during fasting, is the sabudana khichdi. The sabudana khichdi is cooked using tapioca pearl with potato and peanuts and is generally prepared during festival season like navaratri, ekadashi, poornima, ramnavmi etc when wheat based dishes are generally avoided.
The addition of Peanuts and other nuts adds the much needed protein , making it a more balanced meal.Soaked sabudana pearls are stir-fried with crushed peanuts, boiled potatoes, chillies, cumin seeds, coconut and other ingredients that are permitted during a fast. The chewy texture and starchy taste of sago is 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.

This recipe has a wonderful blend of flavors — tangy, spicy and balanced to perfection. It makes a mouth watering brunch or lunch item and is often enjoyed during times of fasting.
