1 cup sabu
1/2 tbsp cumin whole
1 tbsp cumin powder
1 tbsp coriander powder
2-3 green chillies, de-seeded and chopped
1 inch root ginger, finely chopped
vegetable oil
3 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 cup peanuts
1 big potato


Measure 1 cup of the sabu in a bowl. Add water just to cover it and a bit more, and let it soak for 10mins.Dry roast the peanuts in a pan until they are slightly browned and keep them aside.Peel and cut the potatoes in 1/2 inch cubes. Boil them, taking care not to over boil them. Drain them slightly before they are fully tender and cooked.Heat 2 tbsp oil in a pan. Add the cumin and ginger and let them crackle. Add the potatoes and fry till they are golden. Break the sabu with your hand so the grains separate. Add the sabu to the pan and mix them well. Add the sugar, salt, turmeric powder, lemon juice, chillies, cumin and coriander powder and keep on cooking until they are fully mixed and the sabu takes a light brown colour.Add the lemon juice.
