Sabudana thalipeeth (Sago Pancake)

Sabudana thalipeeth (Sago Pancake)



I love sabudana vada but as we all know, it is fried and eating fried food is not good for health so this one is a lighter version of sabudana vada with all taste and flavours but with less oil.....

Preparation time : 10 Min + 3-4 hours (soaking time for sabudana)

Cooking Time : 15 - 20 Min

Ingredients :

  • 1 Cup Sabudana (sago), soaked in water
  • 2 Boiled Potatoes (mashed)
  • 2 Tablespoon roasted and crushed peanuts
  • 2 Chopped green chillies
  • 2 Tablespoon Chopped Coriander leaves
  • 6-8 Curry leaves chopped
  • Salt according to taste
  • Chilly powder according to taste
  • 3-4 Tablespoon oil for cooking
Procedure :
  • In a bowl add Sabudana, mashed potatoes, green chillies, fresh coriander leaves, curry leaves, peanuts, salt and chilly powder and make a dough type mixture


  • Divide the Mixture into small portions size ball (say 5 portions) 

  • As the dough is bit sticky so it is difficult to roll the dough into bread, let's use a trick for this. Take thick plastic sheet grease it with some oil, now place sabudana ball on it and cover it with plastic sheet press it with your fingers into a thick round shape




  • Now take a Non-stick tawa and grease it with some oil. Now very gently transfer the sabudana thalipeeth onto the tawa and slowly remove the plastic sheet as shown in picture (but carefully if the plastic sheet touch the hot tawa it will stick to it)

  • Now cover the tawa with a lid so that thalipeeth is cooked by steam. After a minute remove the lid and apply oil to it and turn it over



  • Apply oil on both side and cook till it is golden brown from both the sides

  • Serve hot with curd or chutney....


Tip : Even you can use foil paper in place of polythene sheet. While using foil sheet press sabudana ball with your greased fingers and give it a thick round shape
