For this you need...

Wash the sabudana 3-4 times till the white starchy water drains out.

Soak it for around 30 minutes in water above the sabudana quantity .

Now drain the water and soak it in around 5 tbsp of water and cover it as it gives good result.

If you want to eat in morning or afternoon you have to soak it overnight and if you want it at night then you can soak it in the morning.

It becomes fluffy and the size doubles after soaking.
