Navratri special Sabudana Khichdi with roasted peanuts: sweet, spicy and tangy! - best appetiser to munch on in the festive season.


  • 3 cups Sabudana (Tapioca Pearls) (measured after soaking)
  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • 3 tbsp Kadhi Patta
  • 1/2 cup Peanuts
  • 2 tbsp Sugar
  • Salt
  • 1/2 tbsp Chilli Powder
  • 1/2 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 tbsp Coriander (chopped)


  1. In a frypan, heat some oil and add kadhi patta to it. Let this crackle.
  2. Add peanuts and let them toast and turn light brown in color.
  3. Add sabudana (tapioca pearls), chilli, sugar, salt and lemon juice. Mix together and let cook for 3-4 minutes until the mixture just begins to turn a bit sticky.
  4. Turn off the flame and add coriander. Serve hot.


The trick to prevent sabudana or tapioca from getting mushy and sticking together is to soak the sabudana pearls only for a few hours and not over night. I soak them in water for about 2-3 hours (they rest in the fridge).

Another tip would be to add salt right in the end of the recipe: once everything has cooked and flame is turned off or very low.
