Aloo Sabudana Tiki

“Ek sabudana aur anek recipes”. My love affair with sabudana started with my navratri fasts this season. Sabudana kheer, khichidi and now tiki. Hopefully I will conjure another recipe using these pearls before my fasting ends.

This is another tasty and filling sabudana recipe for those fasting days or even can be eaten as a snack in the evening.

Preparation time: 30 minutes

  • ½ cup sabudana, washed, drained and kept overnight
  • 2 large potatoes, boiled, peeled and mashed
  • 2 green chilies finely chopped
  • 2 tsp ginger grated
  • 2-3 leaves of mint finely chopped
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil 
  • For the garnish:  grated radish, chopped coriander, tomato and cucumber


  • Wash sago thoroughly, drain the water completely and let it sit overnight. Next morning the sago should appear translucent and swollen up.
  • In a bowl mix all the ingredients together. They should bind together like dough. Now with wet hands, make small balls and flatten them with the palm of your hand like a tiki. 
  • Heat some oil in a frying pan. Shallow fry the tiki till golden brown on both sides. 
  • Garnish with radish, cucumber, tomato and coriander.
  •  Serve hot with your favorite chutney or sauce.
