This is a new one for me!
Would've never thought of combining sabudana (which for me is strictly a 'fasting' food) with ginger/mustard etc.

Madhavi said...

wow!simple and easy recipe.never heard of this before.but,just a doubt before trying!
will it be like a paste after sabudana is soaked.will it be comfortable to mix it with rice?just out of curiosity!!!

Sreelu said...


it does not become sticky, still retains its shape and has creamy texture

Suganya said...

Glad you liked it. If you add sour curd it gives an extra zing to it.I usually like sour stuff so.

Rest all thanks a ton for your comments.
