Tip: Add Pinch of Sugar While soaking the the Sabudana,which will make the khichadi Soft.

If you want make khichadi in bulk , Mix all ingradients , tamper with Jeera, chiliies & add coriender, roasted ground nut powder , pinch of sugar & put in a cooker without pressure for 5 to 7 minutes.Khichadi will be ready fast.
Correction : In Maharashtra No body adds kari patta in khichadi it is avoided because it is a fasting( vrat ) snack.
