Microwave Breakfasts : Sabudana Khichdi


Let me tell you a secret. The sabudana khichdi I posted a few months back was made not by me, but by my cook. So you already know I have a cook who does most of the cooking around here, and what's the big deal? Well, the thing is, I have no way to eat sabudana khichdi if my cook is not around. I just can't make it without the whole thing turning into a gooey mess that sticks to the pan.

Which is why I was excited to see the microwave sabudana khichdi that Aquadaze made a few days back. Since I am hosting Srivalli's MEC : Breezy Breakfasts this month, it also seemed just the time to try this out.

Last night, i washed 1/2 cup of sago and soaked it in just enough water to cover the pearls. By morning, it was all fluffed up and dry.

First, I peeled one potato and chopped it into small cubes. Added a couple of tbsp of water and microwaved them for 2 minutes until soft. This could take double or half the time in your microwave depending on how powerful it is (and so will other things in the recipes), so I find it best to cook things in 1 minutes bursts and check.

Once the potatoes were done, I put 1/2 tsp ghee in a bowl and microwaved for 10 seconds to melt it. In this, I added 4-5 curry leaves and a handful of peanuts. Microwaved it all for a minute, then took it out and added the sago, potatoes, salt and pepper. Mixed as well as I could (never an easy thing for sago) and microwaved for 3 minutes. Again, I did this in three rounds of one minutes each, stirring and checking each time to see whether sago looks translucent. Once it was done, I mixed in juice of half a lemon and chopped coriander.

Yay! even I can made sabudana khichdi now. And it was both super-quick and super-yummy.
