Sago Muruku for Indian Cooking Challenge

The cooking challenge for March hosted by Srivalli of Spice your Life is Sago Muruku. The entries for this event can be viewed atthe website Spicing your life. F0r this recipe the key was to soak the sago in buttermilk overnight to prevent it from bursting in oil. The muruku turned out very crispy and tasty, and the sago looked like little stars. This recipe was a hit with my family and friends.nds.
