                Sabudana Khichdi is a very quick and easy recipe, provided you have sabudana which are already soaked for 3 to 4 hours, boiled potatoes and coarsely grounded peanuts, then Sabudana Khichdi can be prepared in just 5 minutes. Some people are not preferring to use salt in vrat(fast), so they can use rock salt (Sendha Namak).  Also few more people do not prefer to use turmeric powder, so they can avoid here to use turmeric powder and red chili powder.
