  • 2-3 green chillies
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup peanuts
  • rock salt


  • Soak sabudana pearls in water for 6 hours. Drain and set aside.
  • Heat 3 teaspoons oil in a kadai and add cumin seeds. Once the cumin seeds crackle add green chillies and saute well.
  • Pressure cook potatoes,peel and cube into bite size pieces. Dry roast and crush the peanuts coarsely.
  • Add the cubed potatoes and saute well for 5-6 minutes.
  • Next add the drained sabudana pearls and mix well. Keep stirring to avoid sticking at the bottom.
  • Add rock salt and mix gently. Cook in low flame till the sabudana pearls turn glossy.

1. Add just enough water to cover the pearls while soaking, if you add more water the pearls will turn mushy.
2. You have to stir continously while cooking else the pearls will stick to the bottom of the kadai.
3. You can add mustard for tempering and normal salt if not fasting.
