Nice, bright picture!! My daughter will badger me seeing this - I never make it but she loves it! Yours looks great! Thank you dear!

PS - I recently learnt the meaning of Pakashale - I always thought it was nearby school and wondered why you call your blog that! Then I thought you must have meant - your nearby cooking school! Me and my imagination:)

This sounds awesome, I love sabudana kichadi. But the last time I made it, I messed it up. The sabudana turned into a gooey mess :( Any tips?

Pavithra Kodical said...

@ Asha

Yes asha akka try once..It tastes good.

@ sunshinemom
Hahaha..Its in kannada..And you are imagination is too good :)
I will type the meaning sometime later in English.
Thank you for bringing it to my notice.

@ Veggie belly

i think you have added more water while soaking sago.You have to just
add enough water to soak sago.Do try and let me know if it helps :)

Thank you all for your sweet comments and encouragement.
