  • Peel, wash and thinly slice potatoes. I have used a mandolin for this purpose.
  • Heat oil in a kadai. Place a strainer over it.
  • Add sabudana..
  • Soon it will start to fluff.
  • Keep in oil until all the pearls are puffed. Taking them out too soon may result in uncooked sabudana.
  • Same way fry the peanuts and potatoes. Potatoes need to be fried a little longer until crisp and crunchy. They should not be soft.
  • Toss everything together in a bowl.
  • Assemble all the spices you eat.
  • Add spices to the fried sabudana namkeen and toss it well.
  • Store it in airtight container and good for 2-3 weeks.
