Spicy Sabudana Khichdi Recipe

My sister got into cooking lately and I must say she cooks really well. As discussed earlier, we love sabudana khichdi and sister also this frequently. But she add garlic to her khichdi and her way of making it is a little different.

After my repeated request, she finally agreed to cook this in front of me and allowed me to measure all the ingredients and click step-by-step pictures. So here is my sister’s version of khichdi. I named it Spicy Sabudana Khichdi.
