sabudana chivda

Finally got some time to post a Navratri recipe and this is the only recipe I will be able to post. A hectic travel journey to spiritual places of pilgrimage, is the reason why I am not able to give time to blogging. We will be again travelling after a few days to devi shaktipeetha temples, with maa’s grace & blessings.

To make the sabudana namkeen, you require nylon sabudana pearls of the larger variety. The regular sabudana pearls won’t work. In India, nylon sabudana is available in reliance stores. You may even get them at your local grocery shop.

You can spice the sabudana with spices that are used in Navratri fasting. I added a bit of red chili powder. Since we do use red chili powder during Navratri, I have added it. If you don’t use red chili powder, then fry the green chilies in oil. You can also add black pepper powder.

Store the sabudana chiwda in an airtight jar or box and have as a snack, whenever required.

    1. The sabudana pearls have to be fried so that they cook well. I don’t think by roasting them they will cook properly.
