If you have experienced the Maharashtrian cuisine, then you would most probably know this dish. Sabudana Thalipeeth is made in this western state and in parts of north India, specially during the fasting days. As we all know, sabudana as per Indian traditions can be had on all days, including the vrats, and is one of the most common ingredients used by religious people. Sabudana Thalipeeth is very similar to roti and can be made with very little oil on a non-stick pan. I recommend having this with coriander and mint green chutney, pretty much any time of the day. The dough that we make is very similar to sabudana vada, however it looks and tastes very different. To give and sustain the shape I add boiled potatoes and some singhade ka atta. Well, if it looks appealing, don’t wait too much and try the recipe out here quickly!
