Saboodana Kichidi

This is a very good dish when u are fasting and want to break the fast, this is what my friend usually makes when somebody is fasting and would like to eat something light in the evening. This also makes a good breakfast dish.

2 cups saboodana
1 cup Ground nuts (dry roasted, peeled and ground coarsley)
3 to 4 green chillies (slit and chopped)
curry leaves few
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp urad dal
a pinch Hing
2 tbs oil or ghee
coriander to garnish
lime juice (according to taste)


Wash the saboodana and soak for 6 to 8 hrs, (if making it for breakfast can soak overnight), drain the water completely and add the salt to taste and the corasely ground peanuts and keep this aside. Take a wok or kadai and heat oil to this add the musturd , cumin seeds, urad dal, hing, curry leaves, green chillies once done add the saboodan and peanut mixture to it and fry untill cooked well. Garnish with corainder and lime juice.

Tip: If u have the time can add vegetables like potato cubed, grated carrot etc.
