Sabudana Khichdi - Sabbakki Uppittu


chitrannaa.blogspot.com
Sabbakki Khichadi or Sabudana khees, as it's known in Marathi is the most popular dish of Maharashtra. It is specially made on Ekadashi day, along with Kadlekai unde - groundnut ladoos - as its quite filling, besides being very tasty and nutritious.

By the way have you ever wondered how and from what the sabbakki is prepared? I too was ignorant and was very very curious. It was back then when Google had not entered our homes. I have always been very inquisitive and curious about such things. There is this insatiable hunger to learn and find out. Like I wanted to know what is the difference between Maida and Wheat flour, whether sabbakki was grown or manufactured, how do the planes fly, how the ships stay afloat on water, how the data is compressed and stored in microchips ........ the list was endless.
