Show me for serving

1/2 cup pearl sago (sabudana)
1 cup rice flour (chawal ka atta)
curd to soak sago (sabudana)
1 tsp chilli powder
salt to taste
oil to deep fry
  1. First wash the sago with water, drain and soak them in curds just enough to cover them for 2-3 hours.
  2. Add the rice flour, salt, chilli powder and mix well.
  3. Adding small amounts of water make a soft but not sticky dough as you see in the picture and keep aside for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Heat oil in a deep pan for deep frying.
  5. Meanwhile, prepare your 'chakli press' and select the plate with small holes (not tiny holed one-which is for making sev or omapudi).
  6. Grease the inside of the chakli press with oil - this step is important otherwise the dough will not slide through easily
  7. tease out large lemon sized amount of the dough and place it in the 'chakli press' as shown in the pic.
  8. Add enough dough to fill the space and cover with the other handle part.
  9. Holding the chakli press at least 1-2" over the oil, but not touching it, press down using the handle to release the dough onto the oil directly.
  10. After about 30 sec, flip them gently over and fry again and again flip after 30 second fry.
  11. Repeat 2-3 times until both sides turn deep golden brown.
  12. Drain on an absorbent paper and serve hot.
