  1. In a deep bowl mix sago and 2 tsp water, mix well and keep aside for 10 minutes to moisten the sago.
  2. Heat 1 cup of oil in a pan. Lower the flame, add little sago at a time and stir the mixture with a ladle and let the sago rise. If the sago splutters as it bloats up after rising then you can cover the pan with a plate for a while. Drain the fried sago and place on an absorbent paper.
  3. Once the sago is done, fry the peanuts in the same oil and fry them on low flame. Stir them continuously till they turn light brown in colour. It would take 3-4 minutes to fry the peanuts properly. Drain and keep aside.
  4. Fry the almonds and coconut also in the oil. Drain and keep aside.
  5. Mix all the fried ingredients, add ground saindha salt and black pepper into the mixture and mix well.
  6. Cool and store in an air-tight container and use as required.
