Fritters go really well with the rainy weather, but certainly not with me :-) (Frying is a very rare phenomenon in my kitchen). I decided to make these stuffed sago tikkis (of course not fried)
1/4 cup - sago (sabudana), soaked in 1 cup of water for 3-4 hrs
2 - potatoes, boiled and grated
1 - green chilli (more or less)
2 inch - ginger, grated
2 tbsp - coriander leaves, chopped
salt to taste
oil to grease the pan
For the filling
1 - carrot medium size, grated
8-10 pieces - raisins
1/4 tsp - red chilli flakes (more or less)
salt to taste
1 cup - low fat milk for crumbled cottage cheese,
- Remove excess water from the sago.
- Add the sago, grated potatoes, green chilli, ginger, salt and coriander leaves in a bowl and mix well.
- In another bowl, add the grated carrots, raisins, crumbled cottage cheese, red chilli flakes and salt and mix well.
- Take a portion of potato-sago mix in damp palms, flatten them slightly. Place a little filling in the center and close in the edges to enclose the stuffing. Press gently.
- Heat a non stick pan, grease it with a little oil and pan fry the tikkis from both the sides until golden brown.
- Serve hot with coriander chutney. (I had some of the filling leftover so used them to make parathas.)
We enjoyed the rain with these stuffed tikkis and a cuppa ginger tea :-) Hope you like them too.
