Sago Patties (deep fried)
« on: March 12, 2015, 12:04:27 am »
This is one of my favorite snack which my mom always used to prepare..
Posting a recipe for the first time, so plz bear with me ;)

2 cups very small white sago
1 large boiled potato mashed
1/2 cup roasted peanuts
1 inch ginger
2 green chilli
1 tsp cumin seeds
salt to taste
Oil to fry
3-4 curry leaves finely chopped
3-4 sprigs of corainder finely chopped

Place sago in a bowl and fill water just enough to submerge it (dont put excess water else it will get too sticky), close with a lid and keep aside for 30-45mins. In the meanwhile grind the ginger and green chilli to a fine paste. In a blender/TM coarsely grind the peanuts, make sure there are few chunky bits, this makes it more tasty..

After the sago absorbs all the water, in a bowl mix well sago, mashed potato, peanuts, ginger, chilly, curry leaves, coriander, cumin seeds and salt. The mixture should be a nice thick one with which you can form patties.

In a pan of oil, deep fry these patties just until they are golden brown, takes around 4-5 mins..
They should be crispy on the outside but a little gooey on the inside..

Serve as it is or with tomato ketchup and enjoy!!!

p.s. Sorry no photo to upload as I couldnt take one immediately and by the time I wanted to, all was gone  ;D
      Will surely try to add a photo next time I make these

NOTES: Please make sure there is enough potato in the mixture as they tend to pop when fried.. so please be careful..
           You can have some variations adding chopped onion, I personally dont prefer onion in these..

Congratulations on your first recipe post. Hopefully there will be many more to follow.
This has me fascinated. Sago would take on the flavours of what it is with so I imagine they are very tasty.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
