Sabudana Khichdi (Javarsi Sago Upuma)

sabudana khichdi is very popular dish in maharashtra. this dish preferably having in fast. This dish is very tasty. My office Colleague used to bring whenever he is fasting.  He is from Maharashtrian. I like Sago dish.. I did this sometime ago it was total disastrous because I was soaking in the water overnight.. Today I tried again by just washing the Sabudana well and leave it for 4 hours (sprinkle water in between when it become dry) . It came out pretty well

Cumin Seeds - 1 Teaspoon
Curry leaves - 10
Finely Chopped Coriander Leaves - 1 Tablespoon

Wash sabudana nicely under running water so that no powder is left.

drain water completely and leave for 3 to 4hours (till it si soft). keep mixing it from time to time and sprinkle some water so sabudana is not completely dry.

Meanwhile dry roast groundnuts on gas or in microwave and powder them coarsely. No need to peel them.
