Sabudana Khichdi (sago dish) – a perfect breakfast food

This breakfast recipe is one of the easiest meals which can be made in minutes if you have soaked sabudana (sago) with you.

Sabudana is a high energy but a low nutrient food so it has to be mixed

with some good nutrient vegetables or fruits to make a full meal.

Sabudana has to be soaked for 4-5 hours in a very little water after gently washing them.

Take 2 spoons of oil in a pan and add cumin seeds (zeera) to it. When they start cracking, add 1 chopped potato and let it turn very light golden. Now add 1 nicely chopped green chilli, one small chopped (toasted/grilled) capcicum , half finely chopped carrot and finally, the soaked and squeezed sabudana (sago). Add a little bit of salt and mix the ingredients on low heat for 2-3 minute only and then turn off the flame . Keep stirring the ingredients as sago has a tendency of getting sticked to each other. Add roasted peanuts, green coriander (hara dhaniya)or curry leaves, one spoon finely chopped onion, ½ spoon lemon juice and then mix the ingredients.

Serve this high energy khichdi in breakfast with hot ginger tea……enjoy

Strawberry and sprouts salad

A nutritious salad diet in morning with some multigrain cereal keeps you
fit, fresh and healthy for the entire day. Making different salads
everyday is again a tedious mind exercise. Lets keep the life simple and
 make a fabulous salad in a few minutes.


Make some whole green gram (sabut moong dal) sprouts by hanging the
soaked dal in a water soaked muslin cloth for 24 hours(keep adding few
drops of water in every 5-6 hrs). The sprouts are the least expensive
superfoods which are full of protein and vitamin c ( anti oxitants).

Recipe: For 1 plate salad take ½ cup sprouts, 4  strawberries , 1 tomato

 chopped, ½  capsicum grilled on tawa with olive oil , 1/2 orange , ½ apple

sliced (grilled on tawa/griller with a few drops of olive oil and then add a

pinch of salt and  pepper to it. Orange slices make your salad more juicy

and tangy and little spices like pepper makes it ummmmmm…..munch on


Make it today and add a little of blue crumbled cheese or crumbled paneer
 to it and  eat it with a multigrain brown bread  toast ……….....……… : )agoodstuff
