Sago/Sabudana Upma


I still remember the days when I used to get absolutely excited of a dish made of small balls :) And that excitement still persists in me. :)

Sago is rich in carbohydrates. Sago upma can really be a fulfilling breakfast.


Ingredients:

Sago(nylon- fine) - 1 cup
Moong dhall - 1/3 cup
Green chillies - 3
Cashew - 5
Coconut(Scrapped) - 2 tbsp
Mustard - 1/2 tsp
Urad dhall - 1/2 tsp
Bengal gram dhall - 1/2 tsp
Lemon extract - 2 tsp
Curry leaves
Salt - for taste

Method:

Wash and soak sago in water for minimum of three hours. The water level should be half an inch above the sago.

Cook moong dhall so that it is soft and does not change form. See to that you dont over cook it.


In a pan heat 2 tbsp of oil and season with mustard, urad dhall, bengal gram dhall, cashew, curry leaves and green chillies. Now add the soaked sago and fry for few min, till
the sago becomes transparent. Add cooked moong dhall, grated coconut, lemon extract and salt to it and mix well. See to that the sago does not become sticky. Sago upma is ready to serve. You can serve it hot with mango pickle or curd. :) Enjoy eating :)

This was very helpful - I have a brain injured daughter who needs to follow a strict rotation diet and has many foods that have been eliminated- I am always looking for a variety of vegetarian recipes that would suit her- I happened to come along your site when i did a search for sabudana . Due to her chewing limitations, I let the sabudana get soggy and cooked the dal more too- it worked out perfectly and my whole family said we sould all have this for breakfast - Thanks - it was a God send!
I look at this as Divine INtervention- we are all instruments of His manifestation !
God bless you.
