Mahashivratri Special Fasting Recipes | Khamang Kakdi Khichdi | Appa Chi Khichadi and Kakdi

How To Make Khichadi and Khamang Kakdi 

Hello Foodies,

          This Khamang Kakdi is frequently paired with sabudana khichdi, a Maharashtrian staple made with sabudana, sago, or tapioca pearls. Khamang Kakdi or Kakdi Chi Koshimbir or Cucumber Peanut Salad is a staple in our home. 

The recipe for this Khamang Kakdi is quite simple and so refreshing that you could eat it by itself or with a glass of tak/buttermilk for a light midday snack. Pair it with any Indian meal, with curry, roti, and rice. The flavors are simple, you can eat it in a small bowl as a snack.

Mahashivratri is one of the most significant and widely celebrated Hindu festivals. It is celebrated in honor of Lord Shiva. Mahashivratri literally translates to the 'Great night of Shiva'. People observe the Mahashivratri Vrat to mark their devotion to their beloved deity. 

If you are planning to observe a Mahashivratri fast this year here are some foods that you can still have while on fast:

Sabudana Khichdi:

If you are searching for an easy and perfectly non-sticky Sabudana Khichdi recipe, then this recipe is for you. I keep experimenting with my instant pot and this one is the best and perfect recipe, I have developed in my instant pot. Follow my tips to make the non-sticky Sabudana Khichdi using an instant pot.

Khamang Kakdi:

This Maharashtrian special khamang Kakdichi Koshimbir is one of my absolute favorite salads. It is a crunchy, crisp, and refreshing salad! This yogurt-based, no onion no garlic salad is light, healthy, and easy on the stomach. I am born and brought up in a Maharashtrian family, and so my taste in food and cooking style is influenced by Maharashtrian Cuisine.

Peanuts Ladoos:

Peanut ladoos (गुळ-शेंगदाण्याचे लाडु) are one of my favorite snacks or dessert to munch on. It is fairly nutritious and is a good source of protein. It tastes delicious, the texture of these ladoos is best, and the way it sticks to the roof of your mouth before it melts is amazing.
