Sabudana(sago)Kesari Halwa

Sabudana or sago is rich in carbohydrate and to some extent in calcium as well. It is a good supplement as well as a healthy substitute for fried food to have during Navratri, Shivaratri, or other fasting days. There are other variations of food made of sabudana like  Sabudana Thalipeeth, Sabudana Vada, Sabudana Khichadi, Sabudana pysum or kheer and Sabudana halwa.
