Sabudane ki Khichdi
If you are a typical bihari by taste(food), you might not have heard about sabudana khichdi. When it comes to sabudana, in bihar people are used of preparing kheer during their fast.we will talk about that in my next blog. I ate it during my engg. hostel days & in no time it became one of my favourite. Hope, it does the same for you. So, here is how I prepare it.
U will need: 2 cups of large-sized sabudana,1 potato(peeled & finely chopped in small squared pieces),15-20 groundnuts, 2 tbspn finely chopped coriander leaves,11/2 tbspn cooking oil,1 tspn black mustard seeds, 1 green chilli,salt.
Soak sabudana for 2-3 hours. Drain & keep aside.Cut the chilli in half N slice it from middle.
Roast the ground nuts. Once cooled, Crush the groundnuts in a mortar. Keep aside for later
Heat kadai well.Add oil.Add rai. Add green chilli. Add potato. keep the cooking stove at a medium flame.cook for next 3-4 minutes. Add salt. Add coriander leaves.
Now add sabudana & keep stirring.With in 1-2 minutes, sabudana mix will start leaving kadai surface.switch off the stove. Cover the kadai. Serve after two minutes. Add crushed groundnuts while serving. You may garnish it with roasted groundnuts and coriander leaves.
Tip of the Day: Mix poatao mash,crushed groundnuts,coriander leaves,green chilli & salt.Use boiled potato for this. Make small balls out of this mixture & flatten them like tikki. Deep fry them.Enjoy your sabudana tikki with whatever chutney you like.
