Sabudhana Kichadi | Tapioca and Almond Kichadi

Sabudhana kichadi is a well-known recipe. Traditionally, roasted and ground peanuts are added in this recipe. I have used blanched almonds instead of peanut since blanched almonds are Tridoshic (for Kapha in moderation).

Get Started

  • Mix soaked tapioca and almond powder and set aside.

  • Add the tapioca-almond mixture and stir well.
  • Keep stirring for 5 mins in low flame. (Leaving it unattended will form lumps and becomes sticky)
