a spicy and savory healthy drink using tapioca aka sabudana / sago for the fasting days

Navratri !!

Navaratra / Navratra / Navratri is just celebrating in Indian subcontinent. Navaratri word has two parts – ‘Nava’ means nine, ‘Ratri’ means night; so this indicates nine nights. Navratri festival is celebrated twice a year, one is ‘Chaitra Navratri’ which comes in March/April and second one is ‘Shardiya Navratri’ which comes in September/October. As the sharad ritu (fall season) is going on, so the navratri is named as Shardiya Navratri. It is celebrated to worship Goddess Durga who killed demon king Mahishasura and other demons in a fierce battle. And this navratri is always celebrated with extreme passion by most of the Hindus.

The celebration varies from one state to another although the dedication and devotion remains the same all over India. Some people eat only fruits and drink milk during the entire nine days. Some refrain to use onion, garlic and non-veg foods during Navratri and eat only satvik food with is allowed during these fasting periods.

What is Sago Dahi Shot ?


Dahi Sabudana is a typical Maharashtrian recipe made during religious fasts. In that, sago is allowed to soak in dahi and then a tempering is added to the whole mixture. Well, the sago dahi shot is a twisted version of that dahi sago / sabudana.


Basically this is a drink which one can enjoy at room temperature or even chilled (put ice cubes / keep in refrigerator till serving)

Sago Dahi Shot completely falls under No Cook & No Oil Recipe category.

Sabudana is full of carbohydrate. So it makes anyone full for longer and provides enough energy. So one should consume it once during fasting time. During fasting, there is surely a container full of sabudana in my pantry.

What are the Ingredients needed to make this ?


⧫ Sago – 

Sago / sabudana / tapioca pearls are main ingredient. Any variety (small / large) will work perfectly here.

⧫ Yogurt –

Basically dahi is needed to make buttermilk here in which sago are allowed to soak. To make buttermilk, I have used 3/4 cup dahi and 3/4 cup water

Homemade Dahi

⧫ Cumin powder –

I have simply prepared a powder of few cumin seeds and used here. Roasted cumin powder works well too, do add if you wish.

⧫ Coriander leaf –

Add some finely chopped coriander leaves for that extra freshness.

⧫ Green chili – 

Spiciness totally depend upon individual choice, so add more or less green chilies. For kids, simply omit this addition.

⧫ Black salt – 

Add as needed. Rock salt also can be used here.

⧫ Water – 

Add this more / less to adjust the consistency of the drink (totally as desired).

The preparation of sago dahi shot in details –

In a mixing bowl first take 3/4 cup dahi, 3/4 cup water and mix well to get the buttermilk aka chaas. Next take the sago / sabudana in another bowl and wash, clean under regular water 2-3 times or till water appears clear. Put the sabudana into the buttermilk bowl and mix well. Cover and keep aside the bowl to soak sabudana at least for 3-4 hours. 

After soaking, the sago will be so soft in texture (that means mashing a sago ball in finger should be easily done). Next to this bowl add crushed green chilies, finely chopped coriander leaves, cumin powder, black salt and 1/2 cup water. Mix everything well, also adjust the consistency of the drink by adding water more as desired. Pour into serving glasses and serve as it is / even putting few ice cubes in it !

        1. What a lovely twist to dahi sabudana..nice idea to serve them as single shots ..you can even serve them in parties and people would be more than happy to gulp down shots πŸ™‚

        2. Useful Recipe Mam. Thank You.

        3. I prefer dahi sabudana during my fastimg asit is easily digested and has a cooling effect on the body. Loved your way of serving it as shots. Looks like a party food !

        4. Beautiful clicks Sasmita. The first I tried dahi sabudana didn't like the raw taste of sabudana. Perhaps I didn't allow it to soak enough. Will try again. However, I've made dahi sabudana several times but have cooked the sabudana. Love this idea of enjoying it as a drink.

        5. My mom makes a version of Dahi Sabudana occasionally, and I absolutely love it. I love your shots, presented so beautifully. Will definitely be trying this out.

        6. Didn't know sabudana can be eaten raw. Something new for me to try.

        7. This is one drink I can have anytime . Especially when I am unwell I drink this dahi Sabudana drink . Such a wonderful presentation Sasmita. Dahi Sabudana short looks Super tempting.

        8. This must be lip-smacking-good, Sasmita! I've never tried green chilli in a drink before but I know I'll love it. Your presentation is so elegant as well.

        9. Now this is one awesome delicious combination that I want to grab immediately. Never thought of making such a yummy drink before.

        10. This looks so appealing and a fun way to have serve especially when fasting. I usually don't have dahi sabudana when fasting but this one looks so tempting.
