Sabudana makes the bones stronger and infuses calcium, iron and Vitamin K in the body. With such great health benefits, Sabudana is a must to be selected in the diet. There are various mouth-licking dishes which can be prepared with Sabudana. One of the most commonly liked recipes is of Sabudana Thalipeeth as it is extremely light and does not include much oil.
- Sabudana or Tapioca Pearls- ⅔ cup
- Potatoes- 2 (large)
- Cumin powder (Jeera powder)- ½ teaspoon
- Roasted Peanuts- 4 tablespoon
- Chopped Ginger- ½ inch, 1 tablespoon
- Coriander leaves- ¼ cup
- Lemon juice- 1 teaspoon
- Sugar- 1 teaspoon (if required)
- Peanut oil or ghee as per the requirement
- Take the potatoes and boil them properly till they turn tender. Peel them off and mash them to prepare a creamy texture.
- Make sure that the Sabudana has no moisture left in it and then, add the mashed potatoes to it. Also, include Cumin powder, roasted peanuts, chopped ginger, salt as much as required and lemon juice and mix them all nicely.
- Once all the ingredients have been mixed, add coriander leaves and mix it again.
- Take a non-stick frying pan and heat about 1 or 2 teaspoons of the peanut oil or ghee.
- Apply a little peanut oil on your palms and take a little portion out of the mixture. Flatten it between your palms. You can also use a ziplock bag to flatten the mixture. Make it in round shape and keep patting until the whole Thalipeeth is even.
- Place it in the frying pan and keep trying till both the sides of the thalipeeth are golden brown in color. Make sure that it stays crunchy.
- Repeat the same procedure for the rest of the mixture. You can also take a large frying pan and make two to three thalipeeth together. Just make sure to increase the amount of oil or ghee as per the requirement. When all the thalipeeths are prepared, serve them with chutney or raita. Cucumber-curd raita makes a great supplement with Sabudana Thalipeeth.
- You can also garnish the Sabudana Thalipeeth with coriander leaves and it will be ready to serve with a little curd, chutney or raita.
