how to make recipe?

  1. rinse and then soak 1/2 cup sabudana pearls in water covering them above 1 inch, for 5 to 6 hours or overnight. depending on the quality of sabudana you can even soak for 2 hours. 

  2. when properly soaked, the sabudana pearl, should get mashed when pressed. if you feel some hardness in the center, then soak for some more time.

  3. then drain the soaked sabudana pearls very well in a strainer.

  4. boil or steam 1 large potato in a pressure cooker, steamer or microwave oven. the potato has to well cooked.
