Sabudana Pearls are little balls of tapioca. They come from the root of the cassava plant, which is native to Brazil.
Sabudana pearls are often used in Indian cooking, especially for fasting foods. That is because they are pure white.
Sabudana Khichdi is an example of a fasting food that uses sabudana pearls. I love to eat sabudana khichdi whether I am fasting or not.
