SABUDANA KICHIDI/SAGO UPMA

      I rarely include sago/javvarisi in my cooking ,when i learnt Sabudana vada from my friend, my hubby who is a great fan of this cute white sago pearls wants me to make sabudana kichidi , but to be more frank, i don’t want to give it a try as i thought it will taste horrible and stick to mouth if we make kichidi with sabudana. One day when i tasted this in my friend’s place ,to my surprise it tasted so well and now a days sabudana kichidi is a a regular one which i make once in a week for our breakfast.

  • Sprinkle the water on that and keep it aside closed for 2 hours.

sago upma

Note:

  1. Instead of washing and keep the sago for 2 hours, you can just immerse the sago in water and leave it over night.
  2. If doing that, drain the excess water if any before making the upma.
  3. You can add any veggie of your choice for variation.
  4. Adding capsicum to this will enhance the taste and flavour.

  29. Hi Jeyashri, I tried this recipe today. I microwaved the potatoes before frying it. Didn't have the patience to wait:) I don't have cumin seeds, so i used cumin powder.The smell while cooking was amazing. I haven't used this spice much before. Since i am also lazy, i got roasted and salted peanuts from the store.Thank you so much for the recipe. It tastes amazing ! will be trying more of your recipes soon.

    1. The reason may be you must have washed the sago properly. Sago tends to stick with each other if not washed few times. Try to remove the starch by washing it few times , before adding to the upma

  34. Nice recipe .
    An important tip to prevent sogginess
    - soak the sago in the day as and when it absorbs water sprinkle & turn with a spoon.
    - when it is soft, store in little boxes in your freezer.
    - just use it by microwaving for 1 minute
    - or let it thaw for 1 hour
