Sabudana Upma or Sago Upma Sabudana khichdi is one of the most popular fasting dishes that is made with sabudana pearls, boiled potatoes, roasted peanuts and a few spices. It is usually made during Hindu fasting days like Navratri, Mahashivratri or Ekadashi.

What Is Sago?

For most of us sabudana has always been a vrat staple, but did you know what it is and how it is extracted. Sago is a complete form of starch and is a pure form of carbs. Sabudana also known as sago or tapioca pearls are made from the roots of the cassava plant. Another name for this plant is tapioca or yuca. It is pretty surprising that sabudana has always been that much-underrated food and there are several doubts and myths associated with its origin.

Healthy v/s Unhealthy

Sago is a complete form of starch and is a pure form of carbs. However, it has a very low quantity of protein, fat, and fibre and lacks many vitamins and minerals. Around 100 grams of sago contains as good as 332 calories. What makes it healthy if its gluten-free composition and is naturally a great source of light carbs. This is the reason this natural grain has always been a part of our religious fasts. Here are a few recipes you can prepare on fasts that too in a much more delicious way.

Few tips:

I would like to add some additional tips, suggestions and variants to the sabudana ki khichadi. Firstly, the soaking time may differ from different types of sabudana pearls. Hence you may have to play with it once or twice to get the correct soaking time. Secondly, with the addition of peanuts, you may also add cashew nuts, almonds and walnuts. The traditional recipe does not entertain these nuts, but as an extension, you may add them.

Moreover, these nuts are not recommended from a fasting perspective and hence you may avoid them. lastly, the recipe is made with less amount of water and ends up with almost no moisture. hence it is recommended to serve it immediately once it is prepared.
