Sabudana Khichdi(V)(GF) : Tapioca balls cooked and tossed with roasted peanuts. This dish comes from north Karnataka. It’s a staple on certain days where people don’t eat grains as a part of their rituals. I just love it, for breakfast, as a snack, as a part of a meal.
Eat it by itself or with a side of coconut chutney.
Kathrikkai Yennagai/ Podi kathrikkai (V)(GF): This version of the eggplant and potato dish comes from my my community in the south. The vegetables(Asian eggplant, bell peppers and potatoes) are coated and cooked with a spice mix that’s high on protein, has peanuts, coconuts and a bunch of ground of beans. It has a bit of a bite along with the sweet, but tasty! One of my family’s favorites!
-Eaten with the white rice
