Yet another healthy, filling and yummy breakfast and very much suitable for dinner as well.  Shivaratri is around the corner and many people spend the entire day fasting and entire night worshipping rather than feasting on this day and I guess this is one such super dish for all of them who is willing to have vrat ka khana.

I learnt this recipe from one of the food show (Kannada) on TV long back.  Good food for children as well as Yelderly people, easy to digest and along with cooling properties it has lot of  health benefits also.

  • Whole red chilli – 2 (optional)
  • Curry leaves – few
  • Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp


  • Wash Sago/Sabbakki and soak it in enough water for 3 to 4 hours
  • Cook Yellow lentil/moongdal till little soft (it should not get mashed)
