Sabudana Tikki/Tapioca Patties for Fasting

Sabudana Tikki/Tapioca Patties Recipe
Sabudana Tikki/Tapioca Patties Recipe - Sabudana Tikki/Tapioca Patties is a popular dish during fast or vrat or upvas since it does not contain onion and garlic in the recipe. I made it during Navratri. Sabudana Tikkies is a delicious snack which is made by combining the soaked sabudana with potato and flavored with some Indian spices then pan fried with a little bit of oil on both the sides till it is crispy and golden brown. Sabudana tikkies are crisp outside and soft from inside.

  • Sabudana (Sago/tapioca pearl) soaked - 1/2 cup
  • Potatoes (boiled and mashed) - 2 medium
  • Rock salt (sendha namak) - to taste
  • Green chili (finely chopped) - 1
  • Ginger (grated) - 1/2 inch
  • Rice flour/Singhara flour - 2 tbsp
  • Cumin seeds - 1/4 tsp
  • Cumin powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Dry mango powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Coriander leaves (chopped) - 2-3 tbsp
  • Olive oil or ghee - to shallow fry

For Serving:
Sabudana Tikki/Tapioca Patties Recipe


1. Rinse and soak the sabudana in water covering them above 1 inch water for 4 to 6 hours or overnight. Sabudana will absorb almost all the water and becomes double in size. (NOTE: when sabudana will properly soaked then that will get mashed when pressed.)

2. Drain the soaked sabudana pearl by using strainer.

3. Place the mashed potatoes in a bowl. Add green chili, cumin seeds, dry mango powder, cumin powder, grated ginger, coriander leaves, rice flour and rock salt, mix it well.

4. Now add soaked and drained sabudana into it and mix it very well.

5. Grease your palm with oil and start shaping the tikkis/patties. Keep the tikkis flat and thin so they can cook quickly while shallow frying on pan.

6. Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a flat pan or griddle. Place the tikkies in pan.

7. When the base of tikki is lightly browned, flip it and fry the other side.

8. Flip the tikkies couple of time and fry till they are crisp and golden brown from both the sides.

9. Drain the sabudana tikkies on kitchen paper towel to remove the excess oil.

10. Serve hot with curd while making for fasting. Otherwise you can serve it with green chutney also.
