Sabudana upma/ Sabbakki Uppittu with Moon Dal

Sabudana Upma. Mostly it is considered as fasting food in Maharastra. Back in Karnataka, They do it for evening snack or for lite dinner. Sabudana with combination of moong dal makes this dish more tastier. Got this recipe from my dera mom. I have made this in several kitty parties, potlocks too. Everybody liked it. It should be tasted while it is hot!


Sabudana- 1 cup
Moong Dal- 1/2 cup
Green chillies- 8
Curry leaves
Mustard seeds-1/2 tspn
Jeera- 1/2 tspn
Coriander leaves-for garnishing
Grated coocnut- for garnishing
Lemon juice- 1 tbspn
Salt- to taste

  • Soak Sabudana for atleast 5-6 hrs in enough water.
  • If you are planning to make thsi upma in teh evening. Soak it in morning or if you are planning to do it for breakfast soak it night only.
  • Boil water in a bowl.Add Moong dal. Let it cook 3/4. Dal should not become mushy. Strain it and keep it aside. Make sure there is not much water left inside dal.
  • Add oil in a deep pan. Add seasoning with mustard seeds, Jeera, hing, curry leaves.
  • Add Green chillies. Fry for some time. Add Sabudana and fry for 2-3 mins until the sabudana pearls fades in to different color. Add salt and keep frying.
