Sabudana (sago) Khichadi

Sabudana Kichadi is one of my favorite snacks. My mother used to make it frequently when I was growing up. Today I came across Sabudana while cleaning the pantry and decided to make it as an afternoon snack.

You will need
2 cups Sabudana
1.5 cups coarsely ground roasted peanuts
1 cup cilantro, diced
1 tsp. cumin seeds
1 tsp. sugar
1 green chili, chopped into 1 inch pieces
Olive oil

Wash the sabudana and drain most of the water. Let is sit for a couple hours. Run a fork through the soaked Sabudana to separate it. Sprinkle a little water and let it rest another couple hours. The Sabudana will be soft to the touch. In a bowl mix the Sabudana, ground peanuts, salt and sugar.  

Heat a tbsp. of Olive oil in a pan. Add cumin seeds and green chili pieces. When the seeds turn color add the sabudana mixture.

Cover and cook for 5 minutes on low-medium heat. Remove cover and mix it up. Cover again. Repeat two more times.

Turn off heat, add chopped cilantro and server hot.
