- 1cuppowdered Sabudana (Tapioca Pearls)
- 3boiled Potatoes (grated)
- 1/4cuproasted Peanuts (coarsely ground)
- 2Green Chilies (finely chopped)
- 1tspRed Chili Powder
- 1tspCumin Powder
- 1tsppowdered Rock Salt (Sendha salt)
- 1tbspCoriander Powder
- 2tbspchopped Coriander Leaves
- 1/2cupWater (as required)
- Oil for frying
Grind sabudana into a fine powder using a mixer.
In a mixing bowl, combine the sabudana powder, grated boiled potatoes, coarsely ground roasted peanuts, green chillies, red chilli powder, cumin powder, coriander powder, rock salt and chopped coriander leaves.
Mix these ingredients and gradually add water to form a smooth dough. Allow the dough to rest for a few minutes.
Take small portions of the dough and shape them into rounds/rectangles/squares, as desired. Set these dough bites aside.
Heat oil in a heavy-bottomed pan or wok over medium heat. To check if the oil is hot enough for frying, drop a small piece of dough into it; it should sizzle and rise to the surface immediately.
Place the shaped dough bites into the hot oil in batches, avoid disturbing them for approx. one minute to prevent breakage.
Use a slotted spoon to flip the bites and continue frying until they turn golden brown and become crispy on all sides.
Once fried, transfer the sabudana bites to a paper-lined plate to absorb excess oil.
Serve them hot with your choice of sauce, green or tamarind chutney.
