Sago is considered to be an energy booster. Not only is it nutritious but it combats hypertension as well. I make Sabudane ki Khichdi and Sabudana Vada for breakfast so that the first meal of the day turns filling and nutritious. You can even try and make Sago Dal Vada which has a fusion of sago as well as lentils like chana dal, moong dal. Sago Dal Vada is a fritter which is made by frying the batter of soaked chana dal, moong dal, sago and veggies in oil. I have used olive oil for making them however you can use whichever kind of oil you like for making them. Crispy and amazingly yummy, Sago Dal Vada can be eaten with chutney or ketchup.
