Today is the second day of Navratri(Nine nights) and people in most part of India observe fast.Dishes made of sabudana and potatoes are usually comsumed by people during the fasting period.
Today's recipe is sabudana upma which is another easy to make recipe.I've used sandha namak(Rock salt) instead of the common salt.

Sabudana-1 cup
Potatoes-2 medium,boiled
Green chillies-2,finely chopped
Peanuts-1/4 cup,roasted
Cumin seeds-1r/4 teaspoon
Asafoetida- a gesnerous pinch
Lime juice-2 teaspoon
Rock salt to taste
Turmeric powder-1/4 teaspoon
Oil- 2 tablespoon
Curry leaves-3-4
Green coriander leaves-1 teaspoon,finely chopped

-Soak 1 cup of sabudana in 1 cup of water for 4-5 hours.
-Boil the potatoes and dice them into small cubes.
-Coarsely crush the roasted peanuts.
-Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds and allow it to splutter.
-Now add the finely chopped green chillies,curry leaves and asafoetida and stir for a minute.
-Add the diced potato cubes and mix well.
-Now add the rock salt and turmeric powder and stir again.
-Put the soaked sabudana and cook for 3-4 minutes by constantly stirring.
-Add the crushed peanuts on top and mix gently and add lime juice and sprinkle some finely chopped coriander leaves on top.
-Serve hot.
