Sabudana Tikki Recipe (Fasting or Vrat Recipe) – In India we observe fasting during many occasion. Whether it is festivals like Navaratri or days like Ekadashi. Almost all around the year fasting or vrat is observed some of the other day. The best part about fasting is that we tend to break the routine and give a break to our tummy. During this time some food ingredients are not consumed while other fasting ones are served.
The main ingredient that you will find in most of the fasting recipes is sabudana or sago. There are so many fasting / upwas dishes that can be made using this single ingredient like sabudana khichdi, sabudana vada, sabudana kheer etc. Other than sabudana potato and peanuts are also used in fasting dishes. The idea is to prepare simple easy to digest food with less spices making it best for health. Fasting recipes thus are healthy recipes too.

How to make Sabudana Tikki
To make this scrumptious Navratri special recipe, soak sago (sabudana) in water for around 2 to 3 hours. When the sago has turned a little fluffy, drain the excess water and transfer the sago in a bowl.
Now to prepare the tikki mixture, take a big bowl and add the boiled potatoes in it. Mash them completely using your hands. Now add crushed roasted peanuts, chopped green chillies, coriander leaves, red chilli powder and sendha namak along with the drained sago.
Make small tikkis of this potato and sago mixture. The tikkis should not be soggy. Now take a pan and add oil in it. Heat it over moderate flame. Once the oil is sufficiently hot, carefully place the sago-potato tikkis in it and deep fry till they turn crispy and brown in colour.
Serve these hot and crispy tikkis with peanut chutney and beaten curd. You can also enjoy this delicious snack recipe with hot piping cup of tea or coffee. These Sabudana Tikkis are perfect for Navratri fasts.
