Sabudana Khichdi or Sabudhana Khichdi is a savoury dish eaten during a vrat, or a traditional fast during festivals like Navratri or Shivrathri. But the Maharashtrian dish is also a popular snack and can even be served for breakfast. Make sure you soak the sago for at least 8 hours. Do not soak in too much water.
