Sabudana Bonda | Saggubiyyam Punugulu

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


  1. Drain the sabudana and mash it into a smooth paste.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add the mashed sabudana, ground peanuts, chopped onions, green chilies, cumin seeds, salt and mix it well.
  3. Take small portions of the mixture and form them into small balls.
  4. 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.
  5. Remove the bondas from the oil and place them on a paper towel to remove excess oil.
  6. 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.
