Sago khichdi

This dish came out very well. Thanks to my mother-in-law who introduced me to this dish. I tried it with nylon sago which I got from india this time. It is a must try dish. Let me know what you think.
Ingredients (serves 2)
Nylon sago (javarissi)- 1 cup
Green chillis- 2
Dry coconut powder- 1 teaspoon
Curry leaves
Sesame seeds (white)- 1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder- 1 pinch

1. Soak the sago in 1 cup water for 3 hours. The sago should not oversoak in water. Water should be just right that the sago absorbs it.
2. Add oil in kadai, add sesame seeds, dry coconut and curry leaves.
3. Add turmeric and soaked sago. Add salt to taste.
4. Cook for 5 minutes. The sago should not be too mushy when cooked.

Improvize the khichdi with vegetables, cashewnuts or peanuts. Enjoy.
