A wonderful soup recipe to have in any climate/weather, hot or cold. It is my latest innovation, using sago/tapioca pearls/sabudana/sabbakki (kannada)…hmmm… very glad to say so. I made it in both the versions ie… plain as well as by adding vegetables. And also have added a spoonful of curds to get that sour taste and also it gives the right color to the soup. As we still have winter going on here, we enjoyed it hot which was very soothing and comforting  one. You can adjust the quantity of vegetables according to your need/taste.


Some other recipes using sago/sabbakki in my blog ⇒  sago/sabbakki idly , sago/sabbakki payasa , sago/sabbakki butter milk , sago/sabudana rotti , sago/sabbakki- hesarubele upma , sago/sabbakki uttapa

  • Cumin powder – 1/2 tsp

  • Cook the chopped vegetables with minimum water aldentely ie.. keep it crunchy, don’t make it too soft
  • Cook/boil the sago/sabbakki till very soft, slightly mash it with a spatula and add more water if needed to get the desired consistency
  • Add cooked vegetables, cumin powder, black pepper powder and salt, stir while combining everything
  • Remove from the fire and add in whisked curds, combine everything well
