Sabudana is a starch extract of Tapioca root. In Kannada, sabudana is called as sabakki. You can even make a delicious melt in mouth Kheer from sabakki. I intend to make it soon, so keep visiting my website, recipe coming soon.
Sabudana is a common food during fast (Vrath). It is an energy booster, hence it is often used while breaking fasts. Hold on !! we are not fasting here 😉 We are just going to make this carbohydrate rich white pearls into a delicious tikki, plus it has numerous health benefits.
This tikki is no different than aloo tikki, just the addition of sabudana. Potatoes here bind the sabudhana together. Add in spices, give it a shape and pan fry the tikkis. Serve hot with ketchup or mint chutney.
