Dahi Sabudana is a super simple and delicious recipe from Maharashtra. It is traditionally Upvas ka Khana or food eaten on days when people fast for religious reasons; like for Ekadashi, Shravan Somvar, or Shravan Shukravar.
Over low to medium flame, dry roast the Sabudana till it starts to pop.
Let the Sabudana cool till it is just warm to touch.
Soak the Sabudana in water for 10 minutes.
Using a colander, drain all water from the Sabudana. Set aside in the colander for about 30 minutes.
In the meantime, whisk the dahi till it is smooth.
Add salt and sugar to the dahi, and mix well.
Add the Sabudana to the Dahi.
Set aside for about 3-4 hours. Mix at 30 min intervals.
Check that the Sabudana is soaked through, and is fluffy and soft. Press some Sabudana between your thumb and forefinger; you should not feel any hardness.
Add the roasted peanut powder to the soaked Sabudana and mix well.
Heat the ghee in ladle.
Add the cumin seeds and stir-fry till they start to change colour.
Add the chopped green chillies and stir-fry for a few seconds.
Add the tempering to the Dahi Sabudana and mix well.
Garnish with finely chopped fresh coriander.
Serve with love! :)
