Saboodaane ki Khichdee

A light dish made with sago, spiced lightly
Recipe By : Niru Gupta
Type: Snacks Serving: 4 Cooking Time: 15 minutes after soaking and draining the sago


  • Saboodana (Sago) 1 cup (150 g)
  • Peanuts, shelled, roasted, coarsely pounded cup (50 g)
  • Ghee 2 tbsp (30 g)
  • Zeera (Cumin seeds) 1 tsp
  • Sabut lal Mirch (whole dried red pepper) 3-4
  • Kadhi Patta (curry leaves) 1 sprig
  • Sendha Namak (white rock salt) 2 tsp or to taste
  • Chilli powder 1 tsp
  • Hara Dhania (Coriander leaves) 1 tbsp (heaped)
  • Green Chillies, chopped 1 tsp or to taste
  • Lemon juice 1 tbsp or to taste


  • Wash Saboodana till water clears. Soak in water to about 3cm/1 1/2" above it, for about an hour.
  • Drain in a colander, then spread over a thick cloth for about 1hour. It is important for the water to drain out very well, as other wise when cooked, the saboodana will stick together in lumps.

  • Mix saboodana, peanuts, salt, and chilli powder very well, so that it is coated well with this mixture.

  • Heat the ghee and add zeera, lal mirch and kadhi patta. When mirch darkens a bit, add saboodana mixture and turn around over low heat till cooked through. Takes a couple of minutes.

  • Take it off the heat, add the lemon juice and mix well. Serve garnished with the hara dhania and the green chillies.
