Sabudana Khichdi is a go-to snack while fasting. It’s delicious, it’s easy to make and keep you satiated for a long time. Eating Sabudana Khichdi while fasting is definitely healthier than eating potatoes all through the day. Apart from fruits, milk, and potatoes, there are not many options to eat during fast. And that is why Sabudana Khichdi is a good option.
Sabudana is a protein reservoir. This is one of the most significant health benefits of Sabudana. It is a good idea to make it your main protein source as it is surely much cheaper than your supplements.
