Sabudana Chivda

Share with friends and family

Sabudana Chivda is a famous Maharashtrian snack prepared using Sago Pearls / Jawwarsi  .
A snack used primarily during the days of fast like Navratri , Ekadashi etc . I have already shared another snack Faraali Pattice which is also a Vrat Special / Fast Special.

We use Nylon Sabudana for this chivda which is different from the usual Sabudana that is used for preparing Sabudana Vada / Sabudana Khichdi.  Since, this is a special snack used during fasting we use Rock Salt / Shendha Namak and Green chillies .
Normal days we can use regular table salt and also red chilly powder for extra spiceness.

Preparation Time : 5 mins
Cooking Time : 20-25 mins
Complexity : Medium

Nylon Sabudana

100gms nylon sabudana
handful of groundnuts
2-3 green chillies (finely chopped)
handful of curry leaves
rock salt / table salt as needed
1 tsp powdered sugar
oil for deep frying


Heat oil in a kadai ,and carefully drop a handful of sabudana into the hot oil . The pearls will tend to splutter and burst as it begins to fry , so close the frying pan with a lid and leave a gap for steam to escape.
As the spluttering stops, you can see that the pearls have swollen up well and appear crispy like popcorns. Drain and keep it in a wide bowl.

Fry the groundnuts until crisp followed by the curry leaves and green chillies . Mix it with the fried sabudana . Add required amount of salt and sugar and toss it well.

Store in an airtight container and use a dry spoon for serving.
