( Learn how to make Javvarisi Vadai, crispy crunchy fritters with sago pearls)
Prep Time: 1 to 2 hours
Cook Time: Under 20 mins
Yields 10 to 15 fritters
What you need?
Sago or sabudhana or jawarisi 1/2 cup
Rice flour 1/2 cup
Green chillies 4 to 5 chopped finely
Peanuts roasted 2 tbsp crushed roughly
Sour curd 1/4 and a lil more
Salt to taste
Grated coconut 2 tbsp( optional)
Oil for deep frying 2 cups
How to make it?
Add all the ingredients except the oil in a mixing bowl.
Start adding the curd and knead in to a dough. You just have to add enough curd to bind the mixture into a dough like mass.
Let it rest for an hour or till the sago becomes soft. Different varieties of sago take different times to soften. So adjust accordingly.
You will find that the dough is crumbly now. The sago absorbs all the curd so the mixture becomes crumbly.
Add a little water if you feel the dough is too loose to bring back the dough like consistency.
Make small equal size balls of the dough and flatten them to little discs.
Heat up the oil in a kadai.
Drop the discs in the oil and fry on low flame until both sides turn golden brown.
Drain on a kitchen towel.
Serve hot with ketchup or mint chutney.
