     1 tsp lime juice
     salt to taste

2. Roast the peanuts and grind them coarsely.

3. Mix ground peanuts with sabudana.

4. Heat ghee in a pan and add mustard seeds. When they crackle, add curry leaves and green chillies. After a few seconds add sabudana mixture. Add salt.

5. Cook on medium heat for about 5 minutes stirring all the time. Do not cover the pan otherwise you will get thick lumps. Each pearl of sago should be separate.

6. Add lime juice. Serve sabudana khichdi hot.
