How to update(insert data fetched from API) multiple entry widgets of tkinter after X seconds ?

I am working on a currency dashboard project, in which I am showing the values of currencies (fetched from API) in entry widgets. And I want to update them after every 10 seconds, how can I do that ?``

    datafromserver = res.json()
    BHD = datafromserver['data']['BHD']
