Nylon sabudana is easily available in stores.

Ingredients:

1cup Nylon Sabudana large pearls.

1/4 cups Peanuts.

15 Curry leaves.

4 Green chillies.

1 tbspn Powdered Sugar.

Salt to taste.

Oil for frying.

Method:

In a big kadhai heat oil,add sabudana pearls,they will immediately start puffing up,do dont overcrowd the kadhai as they need space to puff up.The pearls needs to be fried very well,even if they look crisp and done from out they will be heard from inside.you can bite into one or two to check they are completely cooked.

Once done remove them on tissue paper.Finish frying all the pearls.

Now fry peanuts,curry leaves and green chillies till they become crispy.
