You may add ginger to the khichdi, tastes good.You may also add turmeric or other spices if not making this khichdi for fasting.Replace the salt with sendha namak if you are making this sabudana khichdi for navratri fast.
Rinse sabudana under water until water turns clear. This is important to get rid of all the starch.
Transfer the rinsed sabudana to a large bowl and add 1 cup water to it.
In the morning the sabudana would have soaked up all the water. But you still drain it using a colander just to get rid of any excess water.
To check if sabudana is ready to cook, press a pearl between your thumb and index finger. It should smash easily. Set it aside.
Heat oil in a pan on medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add the cumin seeds and let them sizzle for few seconds.
Then add the diced potatoes and cook for 3-4 minutes stirring often until potatoes are almost cooked. It’s important to dice the potatoes small here so that cook quickly.
Add the raw peanuts and for another 2-3 minutes.
Then add the green chili, curry leaves and cook for 1 more minute.
Add the drained sabudana to the pan along with salt .
Mix well until well combined.
Cook for few minutes until most of the sabudana pearls become translucent, stirring once or twice. Do not cook it for a long time else it will stick. Remove pan from heat. Add lemon juice and cilantro and toss to combine.
Serve sabudana khichdi hot with chilled yogurt.
