Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 15 min
Serves: 2-3


  • 1 cup sago (sabudana)
  • 2 small potatoes
  • 2 tbsp chopped coriander
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp chopped ginger
  • 2 green chillies
  • Oil to fry


Soak sabudana in water for 20 minutes. Drain water and keep aside.

Boil, mash potatoes and set aside.

Take a bowl and mix together soaked sabudana, mashed potatoes, chopped green chillies, salt, chopped coriander, lime juice and chopped ginger. Do not add water.

Heat oil required for deep-frying in a kadai. Make lemon-sized balls of the mixture, flatten them on a polythene and fry over a medium flame till golden brown.
