Sago/Tapioca Pearl Upma
1 cup sago/sabudana/tapioca pearls
1 medium onion chopped
½ cup finely chopped vegetables (per your wish)
½ tsp ginger chopped finely
1 green chili chopped
Few curry leaves
Handful of roasted peanuts or cashewnuts
½ tsp mustard seeds
2 tbsp oil
Wash and soak sago in water for min 5 hrs. Usually it’s soaked overnight.
Drain and keep aside in a sieve.
Heat oil and add mustard seeds.
When mustard splutters, add onion, ginger, green chili and curry leaves.
Saute for few minutes and add vegies and salt.
Cook for few mins till vegies are cooked. Mixture should be dry.
Add sago and mix gently. Check salt.
Keep stirring for few minutes till all sago pearls become translucent.
(If the sago is drained well and vegetable mix is dry before you add sago, upma will not become gooey.Pearls will be separate).
Add nuts and mix well.
