Sabudana Khichdi is a perfect food for those on a fast – but generally wiped off by others in the family who are not on a fast also, because it is so irresistibly tasty! The chewy texture and starchy taste of sago is so beautifully complemented by the nutty flavour of coarsely powdered peanuts, and balanced by the tangy lemon juice, making this khichdi soothing to the taste-buds, yet very tempting too.
