    You know Sabudana Khichdi is one of the most famous in Indore… when we shifted in this city we were amusted to see hawkers making Khichdi of Sabudana… but its worth eating !!! At our Sharafa Bazaar we have our customary bhaiya who makes lovely Sabudana Khicdhi with lots of nimbu !!! I love it a lot and we have it for dinner lots of times !!!!
