Sago Khichri


1 tspoon Jeera (Cumin seeds)
2-3 Green Chili
1 cup Sago
2 tablespoon Oil/Ghee
half cup Roasted peanuts (powdered)
Cilantro leaves
1 Potato peeled and chopped in small cubes
2 tbsp grated fresh Coconut (this is optional)
1 tblpoon sugar (or as per taste)

For chutney you can use curd, mint and cilantro.


Soak1 cup of sago by placing it in a flat container, then rinsing once with water, then adding enough water to just cover the sago in the container. Cover and leave for 4 hours or overnight. This results in perfectly fluffed sago. You can try pressing it to test if it is properly soaked. Note that sago, should not be sticking to each other.Now you should, Season the fluffed sago by adding 3/4 cup coarsely powdered roasted peanuts, salt to taste and 1 tbsp sugar.Saute a tsp of cumin seeds in a pan containing 1 tbsp oil + 1 tbsp ghee...or just 2 tbsp oilAdd 3-4 slit green chillies , followed by one diced potato.Cover and cook till potatoes are golden brown.After this add the seasoned sago and saute for 7-9 minutes, cover and cook for another couple of minutes.Finally, add the grated coconut and minced cilantro and sprinkle on some lemon juice and you are done!Serve it hot with the curd and mint chutney. I love Sago also with the banana.
