Sabudana thalipeeth or sago roti is super awesome in taste and texture. Oh my gosh, where in the world was I living? Why I took so long to cook such as an awesomeness?
These cute little sago pearls have insisted me to post two fasting recipes in a row. Because they are as delicious as they look and feel. Sago delight followed by sago roti, meaning a dessert followed by savory thing. When I made that delight and served the kids after school, they were like in food heaven and they licked clean the bowl of golden beauty. This response from my children triggered my love towards sago pearls. And I decided to create the magic of sago thalipeeth which is a kind of pancake with few spices and peanuts.
I surely owe our ancestors who made a recipe to be so good and wonderful. How did they even know that the binding of peanuts, sago and potato would be so much amazing and delicious? Because peanut+potato+sago binding happened even in sabudana kichadi too. So in most sago recipes of fasting days have these 3 ingredients in common. And I am thrilled at the way we can feel the crunch of peanuts while biting this thalipeeth in my mouth. It’s an absolute comfort to eat them when we actually FAST.
Let me also talk about potatoes here. Potato is a real agent to make the sago pearls get united with all other stuff. So you can imagine the dough and it’s softness with no flours being used in it. When you make the dough and pat it over parchment, handle it carefully. Just because they are delicate and fragile like that. I was little extra careful to remove the thalipeeth from griddle as I wanted a picture perfect one. You can end your FASTING with this sabudana thalipeeth and feel the divinity with taste.
