Crunchy and one of the easy snacks .My hubby by mistake bought sago from Indian store, when we already had a big bag at home... So was wondering what to do with so much at home... All I knew was payasam(pudding) and kichidi... When searching for some recipe .... I came across this. Looked so simple, though the recipe had nylon sago I tried with normal one that we had and  it did come out well except that... Few of the pearls were not as crispy as the rest... Guess if I should have used nylon sago as told in the recipe Or may be I did not use proper ladle for frying...  Anyways Will try again when I get nylon sago .. But as of now let me come to the recipe..before which I would like to tell this... My husband liked it so much and one of my friend who had this too liked it so much that she had second serving:)

Oil-enough to deep fry
Salt-as per taste
Chilli powder-to taste
Curry leaf-few

1)Heat oil in a pan and fry peanut and curry leaf( be careful as it will splutter)separately and keep it aside.
2)In the same oil using porous ladle ( bhoondhi karandi ,ladle with holes) fry the sago pearls till it puffs up( be careful as it may splutter)
3) Drain the oil of all the fried items and mix it with salt,Chilli powder .

Store in air tight container. But ...if you have kids or people who loves crunchy snacks.... This  1 cup sago will vanish in couple of hours.. Like in our house :)
