Sago/ Sabudana: Sago also commonly known as Sabudana is a starch extracted from the pith of sago palm stems botanically called as Metroxylon sagu. Sago is the major staple food for the lowland people of New Guinea and Moluccas where it is called as Saksak and sagu.
Traditionally can be cooked in various ways like the sago vada or a simple sago upma or as a pancake! Pearl sago, a commercial product, closely resembles pearl tapioca. Both typically are small (about 2 mm diameter) dry, opaque balls. Both may be white (if very pure) or colored naturally grey, brown or black, or artificially pink, yellow, green, etc. When soaked and cooked, both become much larger, translucent, soft and spongy.
Both are widely used in Indian, Bangladeshi and Srilankan cuisine in a variety of dishes, and around the world, usually in puddings. In India, pearl sago is called javvarisi (Tamil), sabudana (Hindi), and saggubeeyam (Telugu) among other regional and local names, and is used in a variety of dishes such as desserts boiled with sweetened milk on occasion of religious fasts. In Ayurvedic medicine, it is believed that sago porridge can be an effective and simple food to "cool and balance one's body heat" when taking strong medicine or antibiotics.
Sabudana is full of starch or carbohydrates and is great for a quick boost of energy, and hence often served in India for breaking fasts during religious festivals. Sago gruel is also great when you're sick because it gives you quick energy and is easy to digest. According to Indian medicine, sago and rice have a cooling effect on the system; hence sago gruel is given if you have excess bile (caused by excess body heat). Sabudana is extremely low in fat but also low in protein.
As its just starch, other than the carbohydrates, nutrition-wise, sabudana does not contain any minerals or vitamins and has very low amounts of calcium, iron, and fiber. Sago can be made into vadas and boiled and sun-dried and made into pappadums.
