Potato and Sago tikkis

This is a simple snack, easy to prepare. Kids will like them as they taste more or less like finger chips as the main ingredient is potato. Same as the fries,  you must eat them when they are warm. Unlike the other fritters like bhajis or vadas, these doesn't taste nice when they become stale


Sago seeds - 1 cup
Potato - 2 medium
Green chili - 2-3 finely chopped
Curry leaves - Freshly chopped - 2-3 tbsp
Rice flour - 1 tbsp
Lemon juice - 1 tsp
Salt to taste

Grated potato, soaked sago, green chilli and curry leaves

Soak the sago pearls / Sabodhana, in enough water to cover it, for about two hours. Drain off excess water. 

Just before making the tikkis, grate the potato and remove the excess water.

Mix together sabudana, grated potato, green chillies, curry leaves, lemon juice, rice flour and salt. Mix thoroughly. Divide into sixteen lemon sized balls, flatten between palms of your hands. 

Heat sufficient oil in a kadai and deep fry vadas in hot oil till golden brown. 

Drain on absorbent paper and Serve hot.

Note - For variation, you can also add chopped coriander instead of curry leaves. You can also add coarsely ground roasted peanuts.
