  1. Rinse the sabudana (tapioca pearls) for 3 – 4 times to remove excess starch. Drain all the water and add 1 cup of water to the washed sabundana. Soak the sabudana for 4-5 hours. By now, the sabudana should have puffed up and is soft to the touch.

  4. Mix all the ingredients, and slightly mash it with your hands. Divide the mixture into four equal part and make round balls.
  5. Spray or brush some oil on both side of the waffle maker. Take one of the balls and place it on the waffle maker. Press and close the waffle maker to start cooking.
