I happened to have this in my PG when my friend and PG made V made this. I would say it is a wonderful snack. It is spicy, salty, sweet and sour. The best part is, to chew the tiny sago which is moving in our mouth. It is fun. Thanks to V. I have prepared this recipe several times. Each time it becomes better.
Big Sabudana / Tapioca Pearls/ sago – 1 cup
You can wash this 2-3 times in a colander. Take a flat plate or vessel and transfer the sago. Add 1/4 cup of water and soak for 1 hour to 1-1/2 hours. It will be expand and become like below.
