Sabudana Khichadi (Sago Kitchree)

Hi Everyone, This week we conclude the 5-part series on Tastes Like Home August Holidays. When I decided to make this dish for the August Holiday series, I had no idea that it would line up as one of the dishes usually made during Navratri, which concludes today. Navratri is a period of nine days observed by Hindus as the most auspicious days of the lunar calendar. It is a period of fasting and the eating of vegetarian dishes.

You know how some people have bucket lists? Well I have lists of foods and dishes that I would like to try, and this “fried” sago was one of them. As you know, I am always interested in trying new dishes and flavours with familiar ingredients. Prior to this Sabudana Khichadi, I have eaten sago pearls in porridge, as a dessert pudding, and ground sago as Pão de Queijo (Brazilian cheese bread-rolls). I was looking forward to trying the savoury side of sago…..

Hi Everyone,   How does this combo sound to you – green plantains, smoked fish and callaloo?
