Sabudana Musmus

This is a crunchy snack delight from the kitchen of India. This has been one of the traditional snack in almost all parts of India. It's one of the simplest,crunchy and spicy snacks, and loved by all age groups. The main ingredient in this recipe is sabudana(tapioca balls). I love to put a mouthful of this snacks in evening hours along with a sip of tea or coffee.

Now, its time to describe this crunchy and chatpata snack.

1- 1 bowl of Sabudana(tapioca balls-bigger variety).
2- 2 table spoon of ground nut seeds baked.
3- 4 to 5 curry leaves
4- 1 green chili(finely chopped)
5- 1 small onion chopped
6- 2 to 3 garlic flakes chopped
7- pinch of salt
8- pinch of turmeric powder
9- pinch of asafoetida
10- cumin seeds and mustard seed to crackle in oil
11- 4 tbsp of oil

Procedure :-
 In a thick bottomed pan add the oil to heat. When its hot, add 2 tbsp of sabudana to deep fry. Add smaller amount of sabudana so that it fries properly. When all the sabudana is fried keep it aside. Add cumin and mustard seeds to the remaining oil. Once the seeds starts popping, add the curry leaves. Be careful as the washed curry leaves will crackle in oil. Immediately add the green chili, onion and garlic to it. when the onions turn deep brown in colour add salt, turmeric powder and asafoetida to it. Then add the groundnut seeds. If you like cashew nuts and raisins , that can be added along with groundnuts. Once they have mixed well in oil add the fried sabudana to it.  Serve when its cool.

This snack can be stored in any airtight container for a long duration.

Now, readers try and enjoy this Indian snack and share your feedback with me.
