It was a lazy Sunday morning, while getting up from bed I asked my husband “What you want to have for breakfast?” He replied “Sabudana kichadi”, which made me to think about old memories almost two years ago.
You must be thinking whether he is from Maharashtra. Because it’s a well-known dish in Maharashtra. As my husband stayed in Belgaum which is in the border of Maharashtra and Karnataka, so he likes most of the dishes like Poha, Sabudana kichadi to name a few; rather than idli, dosa like us or any other south-Indian.
Once we visited Belgaum (where my husband was staying during college days). And the lady who stays downstairs, who rented her house, we call her as “Amma”. She was very happy to receive us, as I was visiting her for the first time after marriage.
Amma asked us to get fresh up and come for breakfast, meanwhile she kept all the ingredients ready for Sabudana kichadi. She taught me that recipe, as I had to prepare for my husband whenever he asks me to do.
You can call it as her signature dish, at least for us it is. I tried making it ample times but it can never tastes like Amma make it. Don’t know where I go wrong…? 🙁 I put same ingredients in same amount but still that taste never comes. My husband is surely miss having it.
Husband woke up after another half an hour, and asked me whether breakfast is ready or not? Then only realised I was lost in thoughts. I was about to finish the dish with garnishing coriander leaves. I served him breakfast hot and I too had, and we planned to watch movie of that day as usual. Sunday was spent lazy, thinking every Sunday must be like this. .
