How to make non sticky sabudana khichdi

Rinse the sago pearls thoroughly and soak them in ½ cup water for 5 to 6 hours or overnight. Stir the sago pearls nicely to separate the pearls.

For making khichdi, heat some ghee in a non stick pan or wok. When the ghee is rightly hot, add cumin seeds to it. Then add turmeric powder, finely chopped green chilly, coarsely ground black peppercorns, roasted peanuts and finely chopped potatoes. Mix everything really well. Now mix sabudana and sendha salt to it and stir well. 

Cover the khichdi and let it cook for 2 to 3 minutes on low flame. Check the khichdi after 2 minutes. Stir well. Cover again and let it cook for 2 more minutes. Stir the khichdi again really well. Cover it again and continue cooking the sago pearls until they get transparent. With 7 to 8 minutes khichdi gets ready.

Mix some green coriander and lemon juice and khichdi is now ready. Transfer the khichdi to a plate. Garnish with some green coriander. Serve this mouth drooling and yummy sabudana khichdi with steaming hot and enjoy!


  • If you don’t relish eating black pepper then omit its use.
  • If you are not making this khichdi for fasting then use normal plain salt instead of sendha salt. And also you can add some finely chopped green chilies, red chilly or capsicum so on to the khichdi. You will like it for sure.
