Sabudana Khicadi

Today being Sankashti, I am hereby sharing a fasting recipe. Lots of people observe fast this day and only break it after moon rise.

No grains are eaten during this fast, so many people opt for fruits, milk or this khicadi. This khicadi takes a little advanced soaking. Other wise can be made in a jiffy.

Without much ado,lets proceed to this recipe. Hope you all like it and share your feedback.

Hi This is my chance to introduce myself. I am Parvathi, the author/owner of this space. I blog here about recipes that are simple yet tasty. I try to improvise on recipes without compromising on taste. Cooking is my passion. Though I am not very perfect, I love the imperfections and as they say “there’s always scope of better”. I like to follow that. I believe there’s a story for each recipe and the way it is developed. Also creativity is the secret ingredient of cooking. My inspiration for cooking comes from my mom. As cliched as it sounds, for me she is the best cook. 🙂 Cooking for me is a stress buster. Hoping this space help you too whip some amazing dishes and earn praises from your loved ones.
