Sabudana Bonda, also known as Saggubiyyam Punugulu, is a traditional Indian dish made from sabudana (tapioca pearls) and ground peanuts, typically served as a snack or appetizer. The mixture is formed into small balls and deep-fried until golden brown. Here is a recipe to make it:
- 1 cup sabudana (soaked in water for 4-5 hours)
- 1/2 cup ground peanuts
- 1/4 cup finely chopped onions
- 1/4 cup finely chopped green chilies
- 1 tsp cumin seeds
- Salt, to taste
- Oil, for frying
- Drain the sabudana and mash it into a smooth paste.
- In a mixing bowl, add the mashed sabudana, ground peanuts, chopped onions, green chilies, cumin seeds, salt and mix it well.
- Take small portions of the mixture and form them into small balls.
- Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Once hot, carefully drop the balls into the hot oil and fry them until they turn golden brown.
- Remove the bondas from the oil and place them on a paper towel to remove excess oil.
- Serve the Sabudana Bonda hot as a snack or appetizer.
Note: You can adjust the quantity of green chilies as per your taste and preference. And also you can add some chopped nuts like cashews or raisins to enhance the flavors.
