in addition, i would like to add some additional tips, suggestions and variants to the sabudana ki khichadi. firstly, the soaking time may differ from different types of sabudana pearls. hence you may have to play with it once or twice to get the correct soaking time. secondly, with the addition of peanuts, you may also add cashew nuts, almonds and walnuts. the traditional recipe does not entertain these nuts, but as an extension, you may add them. moreover, these nuts are not recommended from a fasting perspective and hence you may avoid them. lastly, the recipe is made with less amount of water and ends up with almost no moisture. hence it is recommended to serve it immediately once it is prepared. if you are serving it late, you may have to sprinkle some water on top of it before microwaving or reheating it.
