Navratri festival is going to start from next week. Many devotees of mata rani observe the fast during these 9 days. So you can make this sabudana tikki as a snack, if you are going to keep the vrat. But of course it is not restricted to make for vrat only. You can have it any day of the year.

When it comes to the fasting food, sabudana and potatoes are most commonly and widely used ingredients. I have already shared many sabudana recipes like dahi sabudanasabudana thalipeethsabudana saladsabudana dosa or sabudana pakoda.

The main ingredients are sabudana and potato just like the sabudana vada. But the taste and flavor is very different.

While making vada, we do add many other ingredients like ginger, cumin and peanuts. but this tikki recipe is made with very minimal ingredients.  Apart from sabudana and potato, only flavoring ingredients like salt, pepper, sugar, lemon juice and chilies are added.

These sabudana tikki are slightly crispy from outside and very soft from the inside. But as it cools, it loses its crispness.

1) Wash sabudana under running cold water till water runs clear. Soak the sabudana in enough water for 2-3 hours or overnight. Always use shallow bowl to soak. There are so many different varieties of sabudana available in market. Some requires 2-3 hours soaking and some require 8 hours of soaking. Soaking time is depends on quality of sabudana. So experiment with your sabudana and decide soaking time. Mine needed overnight soaking. It is very crucial to soak sabudana properly whenever you are making any dish from sabudana.

2) After it get soaked, sabudana will swells up almost all the water and they will becomes almost triple in size. Drain any excess water from it using strainer. Let it drain at least 10 minutes. This is very important step to avoid stickiness.
