Sabudane ki Khichdi recipe is a healthy fasting recipe. This recipe can also be prepared for breakfast or snacks on normal days.
You remember, the last week I was talking about allergy and pollution. And coincidentally the last week proved to be one that gave people a serious pinch in terms of making them aware of the deteriorating environment.
Delhi, the capital city of India and one of my favorites cities, when it comes to food, declared “air emergency”.
Because the pollution in the air was near critical.
So much has changed in the last 6 years that I left Delhi and came to Bangalore. Air pollution just kept increasing every day and in just 6 years it has reached a critical level.
I am shocked at how negligent people would have been that in spite of repeated warnings from agencies, we just didn’t care about what was happening.
And the situation today is that people are falling ill just by breathing the polluted air.
Who is responsible for all this?
While the state administration is busy blaming all agencies except themselves and the people are busy blaming the civic agencies, the question that we need to ask ourselves is, “Have we contributed to this situation in any way?”
Even if our contribution was by a 0.001%, then we are responsible for this pitiful condition that we are in today.
I pray that this act as a wake up call for every one of us, so that we behave as better human beings and work towards a better and cleaner environment. If not for ourselves, at least for our kids.
Sabudane ki Khichdi Recipe
Sabudane ki Khichdi is fast to cook and is nutritionally good for health. Sago (Sabudana) can also be eaten on fast days. If Sabudana khichdi is being used for fasting, do not use the normal cooking salt, mustard seeds, and oil. In India, instead of the normal salt, Sendha Namak (fasting salt) is used. You can use Ghee instead of Oil, but completely prevent using jeera or, mustard seeds. Personally, whenever I keep fast I avoid adding even rock salt in it and I just make this recipe by adding ghee, potato, green chili, and peanuts. It tastes good if eaten with curd.
