Sabudhana Kichadi

Sabudhana kichadi is made during fasting days like Navarathri,. Mahashivarathri, Ekadasi. I started making this recipe after I got married. When I was chatting with my mom, I told her that I was bored with regular tiffin items and wanted to try something new. She suggested me this recipe. After that this has become a regular tiffin item in my house. We have this recipe for breakfast as well as for dinner. You can make this recipe during navarathri and can serve it to your friends. A different one from the sundal.
