Sabudana khichdi recipe - sago khichdi recipe - how to make sabudana khichdi - upvas dishes

Sabudana khichdi recipe - Sabudana or sago and potatoes are widely used in all parts of Maharashtra for preparing upwas or fasting day dishes like sabudana vada, sabudana khichdi and sabudana thalipeeth. Some do not add potatoes in khichdi. But adding potato is beneficial as it is  rich in carbohydrates, which in turn  gives energy needed on upwas days. Besides being a fasting dish, it is also a  filling breakfast as well. This is an easy yet delicious dish to prepare after soaking the sabudana for two hours. Using red chilli powder is totally optional and it can also be prepared using only green chilies.
