After rinsing  transfer the sabudana in a bowl and then add some water. Make sure that the water downs the sabudana. You should be able to see the water on the surface. Now cover it up and keep it aside for the next 3-4 hours. I usually prefer to keep the sabudana soaked overnight and make it for breakfast.
  3.  After 3-4 hours our sabudana must have soaked up all the water and will be looking very nice and puffy.
