This is an tasty appetizer. It's light, a little spicy, and full of flavour. You can literally eat them non stop so tasty they are.
In order to make them, you will have to seek out an Indian grocery in your area in order to find the main ingredient, tapioca puffs or also called sago (see photo below).
- 2 cups all-purpose flour.
- 2 tbsp rice flour.
- 2 cups sago (tapioca puffs)
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 7 curry leaves, diced
- 1 tspn ginger
- 2 tspn red pepper flakes
- 1 tspn salt
- 1 handful of cilantro, diced
- 3 cloves of garlic, diced
- 3 green onions, diced
- 1 yellow onion, diced
- Add 2 cups of tapioca to a glass pyrex measuring cup.
- Add buttermilk to pyrex measuring cup to a level just above the tapioca.
- Allow tapioca to absorb butter milk. This will take about 2 hours.
- Pour tapioca into a large mixing bowl and add all-purpose flour and rice flour to absorb any excess moisture.
- Mix remaining ingredients with tapioca.
- Make small balls from mixture using a tablespoon measure and drop into oil
of a deep fryer.
