Tips to Mkae Hariyali Sabudana Khichdi:

  • You can also use mint leaves,  basil leaves, and coriander leaves instead of spinach leaves.
  • Instead of green chilies, you can use red chili powder or black pepper too.
  • Instead of peanuts, you can add cashew nuts or almonds as well.
  • Always cover the sabudana bowl with a lid while pressure cooking. If kept uncovered, the upper layer of sabudana becomes hard.
  • Do not use hot water for soaking sabudana. Hot water makes sabudana sticky.
  • The quantity of water should be decided according to the quality of Sabudana. Sometimes, sabudana is very crumbly and does not soak much water. In that case, wash the sabudana as per the above method, drain all the water. Cover with the lid and let it sit for 4 hours. Sprinkle little water if requires.
