Navratri Special - Sabudana Chevdo - Sago Pearls Spice Mix !!

Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,

One or two weeks ago saw the kick-off of the first Euro 2012 football game. We were all super excited and we all had our seats reserved early on the sofa (sparing us arguments later on ;-) ) !!
Just as we all got settled, my hubby said that he wanted some nibbles...after all, what is a game without some food to munch on!

As usual, it was my job to get into the kitchen and think up something. We all finally settled on sabudana chevdo. By the end of the game, there was hardly anything left xD

You will need:-
  • 1 cup Nylon Sabudana ( large one only for frying )
  • Oil for deep fry
  • 1/4 cup raw peanuts
  • 1/4 cup cashew nuts
  • 2 tbsp raisins
  • few fresh curry leaves
  • 4-5 green chillies chopped
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar ( optional )
  • 1/4 tsp citric acid - limboo na phool ( powdered ) optional

Heat oil in a heavy bottom kadai, deep fry sabudana till it gets double in size. Do not add too many sabudana at a time in the kadai. Few at a time works fine. ( I used my chevdo jara ) to fry the sabudana.
Place all the fried sabudana in one big bowl.
Fry the cashew, raisins and peanuts till little brown and add in fried sabudana.
Now turn the heat low and then fry the curry leaves and green chillies till nice and crispy. ( Be careful chilli seeds might pop out )
Add fried chillies and curry leaves into fried sabudana.
Add salt, red chilli powder, sugar and limbu na phool according to your taste.
Mix well and adjust the flavouring, let it cool and store in airtight container.
