Sabudana Ke Pakore (fried Sago Dumplings)
Sabudana also known as Tapioca sago is a processed food. The only thing required to make it is Tapioca Root. Generally in India where festivals are lined up almost every few days a week has made the tapioca root of utmost importance as it is prepared on the days of fasting during festivities. Also medically it has good nutritional value as its rich in carbohydrates and is also said to be good food for infants. When bought in dry form, it comes in the form of pearls which need to be soaked overnight or for 5-6 hours before cooking. It is largely used in Indian cooking for puddings, payasam or kheer.
During my career as a chef I have faced challenges very often to create new recipes and something which is out of the text book. This urged me to always look for unique ingredients and promote them at a national level. I have always found Tapioca interesting. Today I am sharing one of the easiest recipes I created during my chef days. Its fast to make if it is soaked beforehand.
