Sabudana Khichdi (Indian Sago and Potato Snack) Recipe

Sabudana khichdi is a dish that is popular in the state of Maharashtra in India. Sabudana refers to the sago (tapioca) pearls that are used in this dish, and khichdi roughly translates to "hodgepodge".  Every region in India has their own version of khichdi, usually made with rice and lentils.

This particular version is often eaten after fasts. It's also a very popular breakfast dish. I like this dish because sago is a fairly exotic ingredient, and I don't get to cook with it very often. 

The challenge is in preparing the sago properly. Make sure to buy your sago from an Indian store; I've tried to make it with sago from the Asian market and it didn't turn out properly. When it turns out right, the cooked sago melts in your mouth, and the spices and curry leaves that the potatoes cook in is beyond heavenly.
