Top 5 Healthy and Fun Sabudana Recipes
Sabudana is this tiny droplet like balls which make for quite the preferred food during any fasting festivals in India. Rich in vitamin K, protein, good carbs, fiber, calcium, and iron, sabudana is quite popular in the Indian Subcontinent. But the surprising fact is its origin wasn’t India but South America. It was introduced to Indians by the Portuguese, and the rest is history. Sabudana, also known as sago, doesn’t have to be restricted to fast but it can be quite the go-to breakfast option regularly. Instead of resorting to only sabudana khichdi, there are quite a lot of ways to put the sabudana to good use. Here are a few sabudana recipes you can try.
