Sabudana /sabakki/shapithandulu /Tapioca pearl in marati, kannada, konkani and english respectively.  Normally sabudana dishes are  meant for fasting like the popular sabudana kichadi, sabudana vada etc.  I prepared sabudana  dosa a couple of times at home and tasted really good , so i thought of sharing it on the blog right now.  It turns out crispy right from the griddle to the plate.  So enjoy hot with either chutney or chutney powder.

1. Sabudana – 3/4 cup

2. Rice at ta – 3/4 cup

3. Curds – 1/2 cup

4. Water – 2 cups

5. Chopped gren chili – 2

What you do with what you have:

1. Run curd in the mixy for 2-3 minutes so that it becomes easier to make the dosa batter.

2.  Soak sabudana in water  for about 10 minutes , drain water and transfer it to a colander and keep it aside for about an hour to puff up so that it will be right to make the batter as shown in  image-1

3. Chop onions fine, grate carrots, chop green chili,chop cilantro and keep it aside as shown image-3

4. Transfer all ingredients to a bowl and add water , salt and mix it well with a laddle .  Let the batter be to a falling consistency.KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Makes -: 10 dosas

Time taken : 45 minutes

Note: 1. The quality of sabudana matters to soak and drain as sabudana available in few of the  shops tend to dissolve immediately and nothing remains.  So identify and buy the sabudana pearls.

2. Running the curds in the mixer is to bring it to a consistency to make a suitable dosa batter.

3. Use fine rice atta so that it mixes well to turn the dosa crispy.

      Hi Priya,

      Thanx a lot for your comments. Coming to your point this is a cast iron griddle. I bought it from “Patel brothers” here at queens. It is also available in other indian stores and also since Patel brothers is a chain it could be available all over the U.S. Please pass on the link of this blog among your friends community.
