How does one make a perfect  non sticky sabudana khichdi is always a tricky  question. Isn't it?

So let's get straight into this easy recipe and learn some tricks to make a non sticky sabudana khichdi.


Do not over soak the sabudana, just half an inch above the level of sabudana. First  wash the pearls under cold tap water. Wash till the water gets clear and all the sticky starch is removed. And before cooking strain well. This should do the trick for a perfect khichdi.


1 cup sago (sabudana)
1/2 cup roasted peanuts
10-12 curry leaves
1 large potatoes
1/2 tsp cumin seeds (jeera)
1 chopped green chillies
Coriander for garnish
2 tbsp oil
Salt to taste


1. Wash and soak the sabudana the same way explained in the trick. 

2. Drain and keep aside for about 2 hours. If necessary, sprinkle a little water over the sago to keep it moist.

3. Peel the potato and chop it into tiny cubes. 

4. Roast the peanuts and then grind coarsely in a mixer.
