Farali Sabudana Potato Rosti Recipe

What a beautiful name Rosti is. Isn’t it? Rosti is a name of Swiss dish- basically made from grated potatoes formed into a small flat cake and then fried. So here I am again with a fusion dish. My variation is especially for Fasting (Upvas) and can be eaten otherwise. The name of the dish is Sabudana Potato Rosti.

Sabudana is the most popular and widely known as fasting food. A Sabudana / Tapioca pearl contain the high level of starch and carbohydrates and also provide you enough energy during fasting days. There varieties of delicious dishes made from this ingredient such as Sabudana Vada, Stuffed Sabudana Vada, Sabudana Khichdi, and Sabudana Kheer.

Sabudana potato Rosti is really tasty as it has tangy, sweet and spicy flavors. The dish consumes less oil as it is made on tava and we can use oil according to our choice. It tastes delicious with masala curd / green chutney or sweet yogurt.
