Sabudana Rotti / Sabbakki Rotti

1/2 cup Rice flour

1 large Potato

4-5 Green Chillies

12-15 Coriander leaves

3-4 tsp Shenga Pudi / Roasted peanut powder

Salt to taste


Banana leaves / Aluminium foil / Wax paper


Soak sago in water for about 3-4 hrs. Drain the water and keep it aside.

Cook potato in a pressure cooker by adding sufficient amount of water(3 whistles). Once the pressure goes off, remove the outer cover and grate it as shown in the picture below. Chop green chillies, coriander leaves into small pieces as shown in the picture below.

Put all the chopped ingredients, rice flour, soaked sago, grated potato, salt in a vessel and mix them well by adding sufficient amount of water. Don't make the dough too thin.

Take one aluminium foil, put 1 tsp of oil and spread it over the foil. Take handful of dough and pat it over the foil evenly as shown in the picture below.

Heat the Tava(Iron Tava preferred) put the rotti upside down as shown in the picture below. Cook it for a minute by covering the lid.

Remove the aluminium foil and put 1 tsp ghee/oil over the rotti.

Cook other side of the rotti for about 1-2 min in medium/low flame.

Serve hot along with any Chutney or Curry / Subji. The above mentioned ingredients will serve 5 Rottis.

I tried it today and didnt come out good. Sabudana was sticky even after cooking...I would prefer akki rotti anyday.

@ Anonymous,
To get a crisp rotti, the rotti dough should be patted as thin as possible. It is bit difficult to pat it thin as it sticks to our hand due to the presence of boiled potato. Frequently dip the hand in water while patting the rotti to avoid sticking.

BTW what is the base material of sabakki(sagu).
It is very hard to digest and used for 'upavasa' in Maharashtra.
