Today I am sharing a very delicious ,easy and nutritious Dahi Sabudana / Sago in Yogurt (vrat recipe) recipe. A perfect dish for offering as Bhog to God or to eat on fasting days.As per the Hindu Calendar there are many festivals in a year. There are many festivals when people fast . In some cases people do no take water or food and this is called Nirjal Upwas. There are days when you fast but can eat certain food items. There is a lot of difference in the procedure of observing fasts In North ,South ,East and Western parts of India. Some people religiously follow the rituals even today. On the days I fast i do Nirjal Upwas. You find Cultural change every 500 kms in the same state.India is so diverse with such a rich and beautiful culture.

  1. Preethi, I’ve never tried roasting sabudana. Will have to try this recipe. While reading it I thought now will come the part when the cooked sabudana is added to the yogurt. Interesting recipe and healthy too.

  2. Dry Roasting Sabudana is a good way to use sabudana in dishes.i am going to try this..love raitas in hot summer afternoon sometimes for light meals.This sounds so delicious!

  3. Dahi sabudana looks healthy filling and superbly delicious Preethi. Loved this easy to make and no cook recipe except roasting sabudana and peanut. I would love to try it next Monday fast. Never used roasted sabudana. I am sure it will be taste great.

  4. Preethi, I tried out your recipe and its a really tasty one. I changed it slightly in that I cooked the soaked sabudana first with he tempering and then added to the yogurt. It was a filling dish and so much healthier than other fasting foods. Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe.

  5. Dahi sabudana sounds really delicious and loved the idea of dry roasting the sabudana and then soaked it, I am going to try this when I do fasting. Indeed a healthy meal during fasting times.
