Sabudana/Tapioca Cultlet

Sabudana according to wikipedia is a starch extracted in the spongy center or pith of various tropical palm stem. If you are wondering how sabudana looks like - it looks like white pearls and usually cooked after soaking it in water. 

It is greatly used in Northern India during the fasting period. It is high in carbohydrates and low in fat. Since it is so rich in starch, it keeps you fuller for a longer time and is ideal during fasting.

Today I wanted to show the recipe of the sabudana cutlets that I made for breakfast and enjoyed with a hot cup of tea..

You'll need
1/2 cup Sabudana or sago.
2 big potatoes
3 1 tsp grated ginger.
1/2 cup red onions cut in small pieces.
Few green chillies depending on how hot you want your cultlets to be.
1/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves.
salt  and pepper.
Oil to fry

- Wash and then soak the sabudana for an hour in water.
- Boil the potatoes. Once boiled, peel and mash the potatoes.
- Drain the soaked sabudana and add to the mashed potatoes. And then to this, add onions, grated ginger, chillies and cilantro leaves.
- Add salt and pepper according to your taste and mix well.
- Divide the mixture to 15 - 16 portions. Then roll each into a form of a ball and then flatten between your palms to make the cutlets. Keep aside.
- Heat oil in pan to deep fry. Once hot, fry each cutlets till golden brown.
- Drain the fried cutlets in a paper towel.
- Serve with ketchup or green coriander chutney.
