Sago -Upma !

Back To Blogging - For now ,It's the delicious Sago-Upma :

Who says cooking with sago can be a messy affair! Mmm.. after seeing Priya's Post & trying it out, it sure would compell us to differ ... Sabudana Upma

However,here my Recipe has evolved with slight variation to suit my taste - have not used ginger and used potato cubes as addons :) I really enjoyed this upma and have been repeatedly making since then, for this summer a really cool recipe to keep you cool.... Priya, Thanks for sharing this Recipe. I'm sure anyone who fancies sago upma will not be disappointed by it's sheer medley of flavours, textures and colour that makes it a true summer dish to savour :)


2 cups sago (sabudana)
1 cup roasted, coarsely grounded peanuts
1 tsp. cumin seeds
4 green chillies
2tbsp. ghee/oil
1/2 tsp lemon juice
fresh coriander for garnishing
2tbsp freshly scraped coconut
Curry leaves
1/2 tsp Turmeric
sugar to taste


Wash the sago & drain and set it aside for about 40-60 mts. Heat the ghee/oil & add mustard, cumin seeds, curry leaves .Then add green chillies, fry for a sec , mix in the soaked sago, peanuts (coarsely grounded) , salt & sugar to taste.
