Add into the oil the crushed coriander roots and fry them for a while.

Now add the minced meat and fry again till it is cooked.

Add now to it water, fish sauce, pepper powder and chili powder. Let the mixture cook.

Now add jaggery and groundnuts. Let this mixture cook until all the water has evaporated.

Make dough out of the soaked sago and make 10 equal balls.

Take the cooked meat mixture and make 10 rolls.

Fill each sago ball with meat ball and close.

Steam the 10 rolls for 10 minutes.

Serve the sago rolls by placing them on the salad leaves.
