Sabudana Chutney is a yogurt based chutney made with tapioca pearls and a tempering made of mustard, dals and green chili.
A unique recipe from the coastal city of Andhra, is enjoyed with white rice. You can also consume this Dahi Sabudana during fasting or vrat season.
Dahi Sabudana is called saggubiyam pachadi is Andhra. Growing up this pachadi was one of my most favorite things to eat with rice.
A very different recipe from the regular sabudan recipes we make at home.
Andhra cuisine is very popular for its lip smacking spicy pickles. In addition to the very popular Avakaya and Gongura pachadi, we make a good variety of pickles with dals and vegetables.
It’s a very simple recipe. The key is to soak the Sabudana for atleast four to five hours. Other than the soaking part it hardly takes ten minutes to whip it up. Pan fry the sabudan and soak it in the morning. A simple tempering in the evening is all it needs before digging in.
