Tapioca/Sabudana thalipeeth

Sabudana thalipeeth is one of the most favorite dishes in Maharashtra. It makes a great, tasty breakfast. It is usually made during fasting (Upwas).  I remember in my childhood days I used to wait for Ekadashi ( festival on which we fast) so that I get to eat this tasty dish. :)

Sabudana khichdi is one more dish which you can make using same ingredients. Once I had bought sabudana of some new brand. I soaked it for making khichdi. But it became little bit sticky. If sabudana becomes more soft; its khichadi does not come out right. In such situation Thalipeeth is a perfect solution. I made its thalipeeth and it came out wonderful. :) This is one of many recipes which my mom taught me.

1 cup sabudana
1 big potato peeled and grated
3-4 chillies
1/4 cup groundnut powder
1 tsp cummin seeds


  1. Soak sabudana for 4-5 hours. You can also keep it overnight if you want to make this for breakfast. Add enough water to cover the sabudana. 
  2. Make a paste of green chillies and cummin seeds.
  3. Mix all the ingredients except oil. If mixture is dry, add little bit of water to make it moist. This way you will be able to pat it easily.
  4. Take 2 tsp oil on tava/griddle. Make handful ball of the mixture. Pat it on tava. Make holes in it and put little bit of oil in holes.
  5. Heat tava. Cover lid and cook for 2 minutes. Remove the lid and flip to bake other side. Roast on both sides till it becomes golden and crispy.
Serve hot with ghee.

Preparation time : 20 minutes.

Is the groundnut powder from roasted groundnuts? Or have I missed something obvious?:-))
