We have all kept a vrat (fast) at some point in our lives, and more than once sabudana khichdi has been the first option that came to our mind. Now although there isn't a single soul who doesn't love the scrumptious dish, it may get repetitive to have the same dish on all vrat days. The vrat food is usually sattvic food, minus onions and garlic, the two things that make the base of almost all Indian dishes. Now if you are fasting, or are thinking of doing so, don't let the scarcity of good vrat food discourage you. Because if you can't seem to look past plain and boring khichdi options, there are a number of mouth-watering dishes that can be made with sabudana which are flavourful, spicy, vrat approved and are surely going to be a hit.
