Greetings for the New Year and glad to publish my first post in 2016.This recipe is easy and indicative of the Indian system of fasting which means: Not consuming anything at all which includes drinking water. Eating select food with no salt or using Rock Salt(sendha namak) Eating foods of a particular colour – e.g. yellow lentils(dal),yellow rice etc. Having only natural foods like fruits and milk. This recipe also comprises mainly of ingredients which are naturally derived apart from the spices which are also plant derivatives.They are Sago/sabudana – Processed as a starch from select spongy plant stems.

  1. Take the sago pearls in a container and sprinkle 2 tbsp water on them. Mix well and leave the pearls to soften a little for 5-7 minutes.

  3. Fry the peanuts and almonds in individual batches till they become dark brown. Keep draining and putting them over the sago pearls. You can even keep them separately and mix them later.
