250 gm soaked sago
1 boiled potato
1/4 cup coriander leaves
1/4 teaspoon red chilli powder
1 cup refined oil
2 large chopped green chilli
sendha namak as required
1/4 cup crushed roasted peanuts
To make this scrumptious Navratri special recipe, soak sago (sabudana) in water for around 2 to 3 hours. When the sago has turned a little fluffy, drain the excess water and transfer the sago in a bowl.
Now to prepare the tikki mixture, take a big bowl and add the boiled potatoes in it. Mash them completely using your hands. Now add crushed roasted peanuts, chopped green chillies, coriander leaves, red chilli powder and sendha namak along with the drained sago.
Make small tikkis of this potato and sago mixture. The tikkis should not be soggy. Now take a pan and add oil in it. Heat it over moderate flame. Once the oil is sufficiently hot, carefully place the sago-potato tikkis in it and deep fry till they turn crispy and brown in colour.
Serve these hot and crispy tikkis with peanut chutney and beaten curd. You can also enjoy this delicious snack recipe with hot piping cup of tea or coffee. These Sabudana Tikkis are perfect for Navratri fasts.
