Sabudhana Kichadi

Sabudhana kichadi is made during fasting days like Navarathri,. Mahashivarathri, Ekadasi. I started making this recipe after I got married. When I was chatting with my mom, I told her that I was bored with regular tiffin items and wanted to try something new. She suggested me this recipe. After that this has become a regular tiffin item in my house. We have this recipe for breakfast as well as for dinner. You can make this recipe during navarathri and can serve it to your friends. A different one from the sundal.


Sabudhana – 1 cup

Cooked potatoes- 1/2 cup

Crushed peanuts- 1/4 cup

Salt – To taste

For Seasoning

Ghee – 2 tbsp

Cumin seeds – 1 tsp

Ginger- 1 tbsp(juliennes)

Green chillies- 2 (lengthwise)

Curry leaves – few

  • Wash and soak the Sabudhana for 4 hours.
  • Drain the water and keep the sabudhana aside.
  • In a kadai, add ghee, cumin seeds and saute for a minute. Then add the green chillies, ginger, green chillies and curry leaves and saute for a minute. Add salt and mix well.
