Hi Madhura, i like sabudana khichidi. Its been a disaster every time i made it! I saw your recipe and followed the procedure from scratch, it came out really perfect!! Thank you for your tip on soaking sago, mixing continously to avoid sago sticking to each other, which helped me bring out the dish.
