Sago Cutlets / Aloo Tikki

Evening Snack: Sago Cutlets / Aloo Tikki Its been more than a year since i started blogging but haven't yet participated in any blog events. I've been looking forward to taking part in an event and it has turned out that the Monthly Mingle Event on "Appetizers & Hors'Doeuvres" would be my kick start. For a fancy vegetarian appetizers, I already had some ideas sizzling aways in my mind.

You'll Need: Sago / Sabudaana / Pearls of Sago

Sago Pearls/Sabudana..... 1/2 cup
Potato, boiled & mashed.... 1 large
Shallots, finely minced.... 2 tbsp
Ginger, minced fine.... ½ inch
Green Chillies, finely chopped.... 5-6 no:s
Garam Masala.... 1 tsp
Egg, beaten.... 1 large
Bread Crumbs.... 1 cup
Oil.... as required
Salt... to taste.

Here is How:

Soak the sago pearls in luke warm water about 2 hours.
Peel & boil the potatoes till cooked then mash and keep aside.
Now drain the sago pearls and keep for half an hour till the water dried-off.
Mix all the ingredients above together and make it small bite size balls.
Dip the sago balls into beaten egg & then in the bread crumbs.
Heat oil till haze forms on top and gently drop the sago balls and fry till golden brown.
Serve hot with tomato sauce, onion salad & a cup or hot tea. :)
