1/2 C Sabudana,
1 C boiled and mashed potatoes
1/2 t Zeera/ Cumin
1/3 C peanuts, roasted and slightly crushed(I use rolling pin to crush mine)
1/2 t lemon juice
1/2 t chilli pdr (adjust this to your taste)
6-8 curry leaves , finely chopped
3 T coriander leaves/cilantro, chopped
salt , to taste
Oil , for frying.
Clean, wash and soak the sago in approx. 1/3 cup of water for about 4 to 5 hours or till all the water is absorbed and the sago swells.
Drain the sago n make sure there is no excess water.
Now add the sago , potatoes, zeera, chilli pdr, salt, peanuts, curry leaves, cilantro and lemon juice and mix untill combined or knead lightly. If you are using hands to mix be very carefull , dont mash the sago
Take approx 2 - 3 tablespoon sago mixture n shape it like a patty.
Shallow fry in hot oil till golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towel.
Serve hot with cilantro/mint chutney, ketchup or sweet yogurt chutney which is made by beating yogurt with a litte bit of sugar.
You can also add finely chopped green chillies instead of chilli pdr.
Make Ahead Tip :
The Sago mixture can be made ahead of time and refrigerated for about 2-3 days. Just bring it to room temperature before you fry
