Sabudana Thalipeeth is a Marathi word which means multigrain pancake. This is a very common Maharashtrian breakfast dish. Sabudana Thalipeeth is popular during Navrathri or fasting time, it can be consumed as a snack or as a meal.
1 cup Sabudana (Tapioca Pearls)
1/2 cup grated Boiled Potato
Raw Peanuts 1/2 cup
4 Green Chillies
1 tsp Cumin Seeds (Jeera)
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Red Chilli Powder
1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
1/2 cup Fresh Coriander Leaves
- Soak sabudana overnight. In the morning, drain it completely.
- Boil the potato, peel it and grate it.
- Roast jeera and grind it coarsely. Keep aside.
- Roast peanuts lightly in a pan until they turn lightly brown.
- Rub peanuts together to get rid of the thin red cover of the peanuts.
- Grind the peanuts finely and keep aside.
- Wash and chop the coriander leaves and the green chillies.
- Mix sabudana, grated potatoes, ground peanuts, coriander leaves, green chillies, salt, ground jeera and red chilli powder together.
- Take a handful of the batter and spread it on a plastic sheet. Wet your hand to spread it thin if it sticks to your hand.
- Heat a frying pan with a tsp of oil. Gently lift the sabudana spread in one hand and remove the plastic using the other hand. Now place it on the frying pan.
- Cook for medium heat till the bottom side is golden brown. Flip the sabudana thalipeeth and cook till the other side is also golden brown.
- Serve it hot with a chutney of your choice though I personally like it without any chutney.
1. Be very careful when placing sabudana spread on the pan because if the batter is very dry, the spread will break. Add a little water if the batter is too dry and the spread breaks.
