Sabudana (or tapioca) has become the new superfood of sorts, but the truth is that it has been part of our desi diet since time immemorial. Tapioca balls have a unique spongy texture when boiled; and when they are deep-fried, they gain this delicious crispy exterior. It is difficult to decide what we like the best - boiled or fried! We think we are biased towards everything one can make with sabudana. So when we bumped upon this sabudana bonda recipe by YouTuber Parul, our happiness knew no boundaries.

This crispy, fried bonda recipe is made with easily available ingredients like sabudana (make sure you wash it well), dahi, water. You need to soak the sabudana in a mixture of curd and water for at least 3-4 hours for the tapioca balls to puff up. To these puffed up sabudana add green chillies, ginger, grated coconut, coriander leaves, jeera, curry leaves, sendha namak, black pepper powder, flour made of samak chawal (which you can make at home). Mix everything well, add fruit salt/baking soda and water. Pull out the bondas from the mix and fry them until crispy.
