A Few
1.  Soak sabudana for 5-8 hours. They double up in size, soft and fluffy.
Note: Soak sabudana / sago with water just enough to immerse them. I generally soak them overnight.
2.  Coarsely crush the roasted peanuts.
3.  In a mixing bowl add sabudana, crushed peanuts, salt, sugar, red chilli powder and lemon juice. Mix well.
4.  Heat oil in a pan, add mustard, when they start spluttering add cumin seeds. Add Curry leaves and mix well.
5.  Now add sabudana mixture and give a good mix.
6.  Sprinkle a little water and cover the pan. Flame on medium. Cook for 3-4 minutes and mix again.
7.  Cover and let it cook for 5 minutes. Becomes transparent while cooking and tends to be a little sticky. Put off the heat.
8.  Garnish with coriander leaves.
