Sabudana Khichadi( Granules of Tapioca starch cooked with ground nut powder)

Sabudana Khichadi
Sabudana is a very healthy, nutritious, tasty savory which is made from dried small balls of Tapioca starch. Sabudana khichadi is eaten during fasting in Maharashtra, Gujarat and some parts of south India. It can be taken as breakfast as well as evening snacks.  It is very nutritious and less oily preparation of sabudana and is my husband's favorite breakfast relished with curd.
Many people do not eat coriander in fasting food, so it can be avoided if sabudana khichadi is being made during fasting.
