This is another saabudana item thats favourite among everybody... In fact there are quite a few children who love to fast because they get to eat all such yummy items :) (including me :D)

Saabudana Thalipith
1 cup saabudana
1/2 cup groundnut powder
3-4 green chillies
1/2 spoon jeera
4 spoon corriander leaves
2 medium sized potatoes
1/2 spoon sugar
Salt to taste

  • Soak Saabudana in 1/4 cup water for at least 2-3 hours
  • Boil potato till its completely cooked and can be mashed
  • Add jeera powder, salt, sugar, groundnut powder, finely chopped chillies and corriander leaves to saabudana and mix well
  • Add mashed potato to this mixture and form the sticky dough of this mixture
  • Take the round ball of this dough and make thalipith out of it.
    (For those who don't know how thalipith is done on - apply little oil, ghee or butter to the tawa and press the ball on the tawa to form the round chapati like item sticking to the tawa - little movable because of oil)
  • Cook on low-medium flame with lid on the tawa for one side cooking
  • When its brown from the side thats sticking to the tawa flip the thalipith and cook it on the other side without lid
  • Cut the thalipith in quarters and serve with curd chutney/curd/butter

You can use red chilli powder instead of green chillies if you don't have them in stock. It tastes little different and is another variant.
Also as discussed earlier in Sabudana Wada recipe, soaking sabudana in correct amount of water is also important to get soft khichadi
I used half spoon corriander powder this time because i didn't get fresh corriander but offcourse it tastes and looks nicer with corriander leaves
