Navratri Recipe- Consume Dahi Sabudana During Fast

It is made from sabudana, yogurt, crushed peanuts and spiced with green chilies. You can consume it during navratri vrat or any other Hindu fasting. Sabudana is favorite at home. On many days we are not fasting still I do make the dishes from sabudana. Hubby’s favorite are this dahi sabudana and sabudana thalipeeth (made with sweet potatoes instead potatoes).Sabudana is full of carbohydrate. So it makes you full for longer and provides you enough energy. So you should consume it once during your vrat or upvas.
