Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • 1 cup Sabudana (Tapioca Pearls)
  • Water (enough to soak the Sabudana)
  • 1 tsp Oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Mustard seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cumin seeds
  • 1 Green chillies
  • 1 Red chilli
  • 2 cloves Garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 inch Ginger, finely chopped
  • 1/2 Onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Capsicum, chopped
  • 1/2 Tomato, chopped
  • A pinch of Salt (for frying the vegetables)
  • 1/4 cup Carrots + beans + potato, finely chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon Turmeric powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Chilli powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon Garam masala
  • salt – 1/4 tsp
  • Juice of half a Lemon
  • Chopped Coriander leaves (for garnish)

Let’s Get Cooking:

  1. Soak the Sabudana: Start by taking a cup of sabudana and soaking it in just enough water overnight. You’ll know it’s ready when the sabudana is mashable, and you’ve drained any excess water.
  2. Temper the Spices: Heat some oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. Let them crackle, and then add cumin seeds, green chilli, red chilli, chopped garlic, and finely chopped ginger. Mix and fry until fragrant.
  3. Veggie Magic: Now, add chopped onions, capsicum, and fry for a minute. Follow this with chopped tomatoes and a pinch of salt, which helps the vegetables cook faster.
  4. Veggie Galore: Throw in finely chopped carrots, beans, and potatoes, along with turmeric powder, chilli powder, and garam masala. Mix everything and fry for a minute.
  5. Cooking the Veggies: Pour in some water, cover the pan, and cook until the veggies are tender. Make sure the potatoes are cooked through.
  6. Sabudana Love: Add the soaked sabudana and a bit more salt. Mix well and cook for 1-2 minutes without the lid. Gently stir after a couple of minutes.
  7. Finishing Touch: Squeeze the juice of half a lemon and garnish with chopped coriander leaves. Mix once more, and your Mixed Vegetable Sabudana Upma is ready to be served hot!

This dish is not just delicious but also a great source of energy. It’s perfect for breakfast or a light, healthy snack. The sabudana’s unique texture combined with the vibrant mix of vegetables and spices makes for a memorable culinary experience.
