Wash and soak ¾ cup of sabudana/sago/javvaarisi in ½ cup of water for about 2 hours.

After 2 hours, you will notice that the size of sabudana/sago/javvarisi has almost doubled.
Drain the sago in a colander and let it stand for another 2 hours.

Meanwhile grind the roasted groundnut/verkadalai along with green chillies in a mixer to a coarse powder. [Save few roasted groundnuts for garnishing]

Heat oil in a heavy bottomed kadai/pan, crackle cumin seeds and then add curry leaves and fry for few seconds.

Now add the drained sago/javvarisi to the pan. Add the groundnut mixture, salt to javvarisi/sago. Now mix everything really well.

Add turmeric powder, garam masala powder and mix everything well. Cook for about 7-8 minutes.

Finally add grated coconut, lemon juice and mix thoroughly and switch off the stove.
Transfer everything to a bowl, add finely chopped cilantro/coriander leaves, roasted ground nut and serve it with a cup of curd/yogurt.

I have not added potatoes, you can add boiled potatoes, sprinkle red chilli flakes and mix really well.

If you don’t have boiled potatoes, you can peel the potato and chop it to small bite sizes pieces. After you crackle the cumin seeds, add the chopped potato and sauté really well until they turn to golden brown color and cooked. At this stage you can add red chilli flakes, garam masala powder, salt and mix thoroughly, then follow the above procedure.
