What is sabudana kichidi? 

Sabudana Khichdi is an Indian dish made from soaked tapioca pearls. It is typically prepared in western parts of India. 

This Sabudana kichidi is my favorite recipe ever, I can just have it over and over again! My grandmother who is from Maharashtra makes this recipe frequently at home.

As I love peanuts, a gentle sprinkle of peanut powder makes it ultimately delicious.

Why this recipe works: 

 The nuttiness from the peanuts gives you nice texture to the khichidi. 

 Minimal ingredients to make. 

 The flavor is absolutely delicious.

Tips to make sabudana Khichdi: 

 Prior to soaking is a must! Soaking the tapioca pearls beforehand for 2 hours is a must. You can also simply soak them overnight for  3 to 4 hours and drain the pearls very well using colander. Excess moisture makes the sabudana kichdi mushy.

 Potato: Boil the potatoes, peel the skin and dice the boiled potatoes in small cubes or else you can simply mash them lightly using fingers. 

 Do not overcook the sabudana khichdi as it tends to get mushy. You can see the glossiness over the tapioca pearls, which means its time to turn off the heat.sabudana khichdi is being served in bowl with mug aside

FAQ:

How much time does it take to soak sabudana/ Tapioca pearls?

It totally depends on the quality of the Tapioca pearls, some pearls are ready instantly. Some need 3 to 4 hours, preferably soaking overnight is best for the non-instant ones. 

Once the tapioca pearls are soaked, pick up a soaked pearl and press them between your fingers, it should mash well. 

How do you keep sabudana from sticking?

Wash your sabudana/tapioca in running water until the water is clear and starch is removed. 

Then soak them in water just enough to cover the tapioca pearls just 1/4 to 1/2 inch of water. 

Because soaking the tapioca pearls more than the required amount would make the tapioca pearls turn mushy.
