Sabudana khichdi

To add a nutty and crunchy flavor to my khichdi, I like to add peanuts – but again that’s optional. Adding peanuts and chopped carrots with bring more nutrition and color to this healthy salad.

Every family has its fasting guideline, so please check with your elders what all you can consume during fasting. One of my friends, avoid eating carrots and peas in fast but I am pretty flexible. So please consult your elders. Use vrat salt called – Sendha namak (Himalayan Rock Salt) for this recipe.

If not fasting, adding onions will bring a different taste to this recipe. Enjoy it at any time of the day – whether as a breakfast or an evening tea snack.
