Sabudana salad recipe for vrat (How to make sabudana salad)

Sabudana is widely eaten during the fasting days and my favorite dishes are sabudana khichdi, sabudana vadasabudana kheerdahi sabudana

But this sabudana salad is very different recipe from the usual sabudana recipes. Give it a try.

My mom has a small booklet for fasting recipes. She got this salad recipe from that book. Recently she told me about this salad and how delicious it is. So on the first of Navratri I made this and enjoyed. So I am sharing this today.

Because of the addition of fresh fruits, this salad gives very refreshing flavor.

Please note, many do while many do not eat cucumber during religious fasting. So adjust the recipe accordingly, I have mentioned other possible options in the notes below.

For a variation
– Try with other fruits like pineapple, grapes, kiwi, pears.
– If you eat tomatoes during vrat, upavas then you can add chopped tomatoes. We do not consume tomatoes so I have not added.
– You can add boiled, chopped potato or sweet potato. If you want you can shallow fry or deep fry them and add.
– You can add raisins or other nuts like almonds, walnuts.

Serving suggestion: During navratri vrat or fasting you can have this as a snack or as a breakfast.
