My Breakfast Today - The Sabudana Khichdi.

I always believed that having a good heavy breakfast helps to start the day and last till the end of it.A good diet and a sound sleep are very necessary to keep ourself fresh and focussed all through the day.Since we do not eat any thing for almost 6-8 hours during our sleep at night,it always helps to have a proper breakfast and a heavy one,especially for those who do not find time to have a proper lunch due to their hectic work schedule.
So here's something which i think fits into the category of a proper breakfast -

Ingredients :

Sabudana : 200 gms
Green chillies : 2 medium sized cut into small pieces
Curry leaves : 6-7
Jeera : a teaspoon full
Mustard seeds : a teaspoon full
Asefotida : about half teaspoon
Salt : as per your taste (i used half a teaspoon )
Lemon juice : 2 teaspoons
Refined oil : about a tablespoon

Procedure :

Soak sabudana overnight.Wash it properly and drain the water.Do not squeeze the sabudana.

Heat the oil in a pan and add asefotida,jeera and mustard seeds in that order.After the mustard seeds start sputtering,add green chillies and curry leaves.
Once the curry leaves and green chillies change their colour into light green,add sabudana and mix well.
Once the sabudana changes colour and becomes transclucent,add salt and mix it well.
Finally sprinkle lemon juice on it after you take the pan off the heat and before you serve.

Enjoy your breakfast.

  1. Hello! This sounds like a simple recipe that even a non-cook like me can try :)

    Thanks for visiting An Indian Summer! In terms of your question around shipping : well, finding a good reliable and reasonably priced shipper has been one of my challenges. I used a local shipper first who had contacts with UPS/DHL in NA and Europe - but had to discontinue with him since my packages were being tampered with. I have now moved to DHL - but only do selective shipping (for buyers who are OK paying DHL shipping rates)
