Rinse the Royal RatanSabudana pearls in cold water, for 3-4 times until the water is clear and all starch is rinsed off. Soak them in a wide bowl for 3 to 4 hours with enough water to just cover them. They should absorb the water and double in size. After soaking, gently press them and check that they are not hard from inside, because that means they need to be soaked for longer. Now drain them completely and spread them on a kitchen towel till they are totally dry. Mix all of the ingredients with the Royal RatanSabudana pearls and adjust the seasoning to your taste, ensuring that the mixture is evenly combined. Heat your waffle maker and liberally grease both the top and bottom. Once heated, use a spoon and your hand to gently press the mixture into the waffle maker and then close and and cook as per the instructions of your waffle maker. Mine took about 8-10 minutes to become nice and golden brown. Once it’s finished cooking, cool the waffle down on a wire rack to help it become crispy and serve warm with your choice of sauces. It goes great with sour cream or mint chutney! Enjoy!
