Sabudana Thalipeeth

Sabudana-Thalipeeth Navratri Vrat Recipe



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



  1. Soak sabudana overnight. In the morning, drain it completely.
  2. Boil the potato, peel it and grate it.
  3. Roast jeera and grind it coarsely. Keep aside.
  4. Roast peanuts lightly in a pan until they turn lightly brown.
  5. Rub peanuts together to get rid of the thin red cover of the peanuts.
  6. Grind the peanuts finely and keep aside.
  7. Wash and chop the coriander leaves and the green chillies.
  8. Mix sabudana, grated potatoes, ground peanuts, coriander leaves, green chillies, salt, ground jeera and red chilli powder together.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
