Instructions
Coconut Sabudana:
  1. Rinse sabudana pearls in cold water, 3-4 times till the water is clear and all starch is rinsed off. Soak them in a wide bowl for 3 to 4 hours, with enough water to just cover them. They will absorb water and double in size. Press them and check that they are not hard from inside. Now drain them completely and spread them on a kitchen towel until they are totally dry.

  2. Heat ghee in a pan, add cumin seeds and curry leaves and let them splutter. Add green chili and coconut sauté for a minute. Then add sabudana, crushed peanut, sugar, black pepper, salt, lemon juice and cilantro leaves. Mix every thing well. When the sabudana pearls loose their opaqueness and start becoming translucent, they are cooked. It should not take more then 2-3 minutes. Be careful, as over cooking can make them sticky and lumpy.
Roasted Potatoes:
  1. Heat ghee in a pan. Add boiled potatoes and sauté on medium flame till they are golden brown in color and are crispy. Then add salt, lemon juice and cilantro. Take them out in a bowl.

Cilantro Mint Raita:
  1. To make the raita, blend the cilantro, mint, water, and green chilies into a fine paste. Transfer this to a seperate bowl and mix with the yogurt, salt, sugar, and black pepper.

Plating:
  1. To plate, assemble the sabudana, potatoes, mint cilantro raita, and mixed fruit into a bowl and enjoy!
