I measured sago pearls using 160 ml cup. For that i used 1 medium potato.
Adjust green chilli to your taste and desired spice level. You can also use chilli powder instead of green chilli.
Soaking Sabudana is important, soak at least for 1 hour, I left mine for more than 2 hours. Drain the soaked sago pearls well and make sure the sago-potato mixture is dry.
You can also add 1-2 tsp of rice flour if you are not making it for fasting days.
