Sabudana thalipeeth recipe with step by step photos. sabudana thalipeeth are crisp and soft pancakes made with tapioca pearls, mashed potatoes, ground peanuts and spices.
I made these sabudana thalipeeth instead of sabudana vada as I did not want any deep fried stuff. Sabudana thalipeeth is a light snack and ideal for people who are fasting.
The way to make the mixture is same as sabudana vada. These also can be called as Sabudana roti. you can make sabudana vadas or sabudana thalipeeth from the same mixture.
Serve the Sabudana thalipeeth with any falahari chutney or raita. I served with dahi aloo and tamarind dates chutney. The dahi wale aloo were made with cashew yogurt.
