Spicy Tapioca and Peanut Snack

Here's another fun recipe using tapioca pearls, the same day I was tweeting about how to use them, someone mentioned that she makes a savory Indian snack with them. I think its from North India as my hubby has not  heard of it, but it went down well as it was al gobbled up:-)

I just found out from the chow and chatter Facebook page from under the photo what this dish is called :-) - Sabera - sabudana khichdi yum

  • one cup of tapioca pearls
  • about 1/2 cup of peanuts
  • 2 red chili's  
  • a little butter or ghee
  • a pinch of cumin seeds
  • a few curry leaves 
  • 1/4 cup chopped coriander/cilantro
  • salt to taste

  1. soak the tapioca pearls over night, they will absorb the water and become soft
  2. heat a little butter in a pan and add the cumin seeds, chili and curry leaves 
  3. after a minute add the tapioca pearls and partially ground peanuts (I used a coffee grinder, we now have two coffee grinders as we use one for spices) and finely chopped coriander/cilantro
  4. add salt to taste and enjoy

Here's to lots more new recipes in 2012 :-) 

Hope your all having a great week :-)
