Today was a holiday here in Germany and, as I told you earlier about the weather, we preferred to stay at home. I have noticed that we eat a lot more during holidays as on normal days...Is it just us? or do you also indulge more on holidays?
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, see the recipe here
- 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.
