Javvarisi Vadam or sago wafers or sago vathal is very popular among South Indians, for its crispy unique taste. It goes well with variety rice or normal meals.
Soaking sabudana or javvarisi, grinding it with other ingredients like chillies, lemon, butter milk is no big deal. But, you have to do this before 5 am, so that you can take the piping hot paste in a ladle, and pour them in white cloth which is spread on your terrace.
The porridge thickness is a fine point, where extra thickness is a problem.
Once you have done it, either spread a net cloth over it or sit there guarding it from birds. The next day, sprinkle water on the reverse side and remove the wafer and dry them again. Continue drying sessions for three days at least, till the wafer gets rid of its moisture.
If it is troublesome, tedious for you, it is a festival for traditional homemakers. They simply enjoy the energy in the air when two or three women get inside the task.
Such wafers could be prepared in a tropical country like India and it might not be possible in European countries or West, even if you have the time and inclination to prepare it.
