 Sabudana (Sago) Khichdi Semi-Fasting/Non-Fasting Version

sabudana khichdi is usually made during fasting days. However the one we are making today many may not prefer during fasting days since we are going to use red chilly powder along with turmeric powder here, but can turn out to be a good, easy & tummy filling, tasty snack with a crunch….

With this recipe you will get a crunch in each & every bite…..
