This recipe has been adapted from the all time favorite "Sabudana Khichdi". I have used almost the same ingredients, with minor changes. This dish needs some preparation - it is not something that can be made instantly. With a little planning, this is a super appetizer or snack. Without further ado, I present my version of these yummy cutlets.
1 1/2 cup sabudana
3 medium potatoes
1/2 cup peanuts, ground coarsely
Juice of 1/2 lime
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
Handful of cilantro leaves, chopped coarsely
2 green chillies, chopped fine
Salt to taste
Oil for frying
Soak the sabudana in warm water for 2 hrs. Drain water and put the sabudana in a strainer and let it hang out for an hour or two till the water has drained completely.
Boil the potatoes. When it cools down, peel the skin and mash.
Add the sabudana to the potatoes. Mix well. Add the chopped chillies, peanuts, lime juice, salt, red chilli powder and mix well. Take a handful of the mix ( about the size of a lime) and roll it between your palms to make a round shape and then flatten it.
Heat oil in a pan and fry till golden brown. Drain excess of oil on a paper towel. Serve hot with ketchup or chutney of your choice.
