Tapioca Murukullu/ Saggubiyyam Karallu With Yogurt || Tea-Time Snacks || winter treats

Snack : South Indian tea time snack : Saggubiyyam karallu

Servings : 12

Duration : 30 mins

Rice flour is made out of rice, often used in South Indian dishes and you can prepare many recipes out of it such as snacks and breakfast recipes.

As if you noticed I posted many tea time snacks which they turned out tasty and delicious πŸ˜‹Β and also I mentioned recipes with rice flour in my previous post.

I would like to share those recipes in this post too, you can checkout. Coming to Recipe I’m huge fan of tapioca or saggubiyyam any dish which can be prepared with tapioca will tastes great and mouth watering 😊

Today, I prepared Sabudana karallu which is an authentic South Indian snack recipe main ingredients are rice flour, curd/ yogurt, tapioca, salt, red chilly powder etc.,

I made these Murukullu with very less amount of water because as I soaked tapioca in yogurt for hours so mostly it doesn’t require more water. The texture becomes crispy and you could feel crunchiness while having them.

I explained and shown step by step with pictures in below sections. Tapioca Murukullu is my favorite Evening snack but I like to have them any time not only Evening β˜ΊοΈπŸ˜‰

You can also pack them in your kids lunch box for snack at evening or with rice.

Hope you like it, let’s start with Ingredients and follows Procedure

Soaked tapioca/ Sabudana – 120 gms

Tapioca Murukullu πŸ˜‹


  • While making dough don’t add so much of water. This dough requires very little amount of water. If by mistake if you have added more water then level it by adding 1/3 cup of rice flour . Try to avoid adding more water
  • This turned out beautiful texture and crispiness because of yogurt/ curd
  • Store in an airtight container and consume at tea time snack/ evening. This tip is to maintain same taste and crunchiness of tapioca Murukullu
  • You can preserve upto 3 weeks
  • Prefer sunflower oil to deep fry than canola, olive , ground nut oil etc.,
