Sabudana Tikki Recipe

Sabudana ki Tikki is the tasty variation of Sabudana Vada. Sabudana Vada is a fried recipe made for fast (vrat , upas) .In Pune most eateries serve Sabudana Vada with curd and green chutney . By adding curd ,green chutney and tangy tamarind chutney you can make this Sabudana Vada even more tasty .Sabudana Vada soaks lots of oil so most of the time I make this roasted Tikki of Sabudana with Sabudana Vada batter. Sabudana Vada is high calorie snack as it is made of Sabudana (rich in carbohydrates) , peanuts (shengdana, moongphalli) which is rich in fats and potatoes , when you fry this ingredients, it soaks lots of oil and the calorie count increases almost 3-4 times . This non fried Sabudana Tikki tastes good and for calorie conscious its low in calories than Sabudana Vada.

sabudana tikki can also be served without curd topping
