No Soak Sabudana Cutlets: A Recipe for Fasts


sabudana vrat cutlets
Fasting, they say, is to cleanse the soul and body.

But we have given it a new form - feasting in fast.

Earlier, during fasts, we would have only the typical aloo sabzi with kuttu or singhara roti.

Now I can see a transformation -people are experimenting with the same ingredients to come up with innovative, lip-smacking recipes for vrat.

Here's my attempt at it.
This post is inspired by Sunita Sharma ji, who had shared sabudana paneer cutlets in my group. I decided to try the recipe, since it does not require soaking of sabudana for long hours. It's simple and quick, not to mention delectable. I have made sabudana-rajgira aloo cutlets.




Ingredients
1/4 cup- sabudana/sago
1/4 cup- samak chawal powder
1/4 cup- rajgira or amaranth flour (optional - if you are not including this, increase the amount of samak flour to 1/2 cup)
2 boiled potatoes
sendha namak
little oil or ghee for greasing appe pan
turmeric
hari mirch
curry leaves
1 tomato

Procedure
sabudana cutlets for fast vrat navratri


  1. Grind sabudana to powder. Let it soak in little water until we prepare the other ingredients.
  2. Take boiled potatoes and mash them.
  3. Chop tomato or you may grind or use tomato puree.
  4. Mix tomato and potatoes.
  5. Add soaked sabudana, samak chawal atta, and rajgira atta.
  6. Mix with salt, haldi, curry leaves. and green chilly.
  7. Roll out into lemon size balls.
  8. Grease appe/paniyaram pan.
  9. Drop one ball into each well.
  10. Cover and cook on a low flame.
  11. Keep changing sides intermittently.
  12. Enjoy sabudana cutlets for fast, navratri. 
  13. Tip : Make sure you finish these off soon, else these cutlets may harden, since we are not soaking sabudana. :)
