A delicious dish of sago, potatoes and cumin seeds.


  • 250 gms sabudana (this is called sago and is available in most Indian shops)
  • 2 potatoes (these should be boiled before hand and chopped into small pieces)
  • 1 tbs. cumin seeds
  • 1 chopped green chilli
  • 1 tsp. sunflower oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Coriander to garnish


Make sure that the potatoes are boiled before you start making this dish.


Step 1
Soak the sabudana in a bowl of cold water for about 10 minutes or until the sago becomes soft.
Step 2
Drain in a colander and keep aside.
Step 3
Heat up the oil in a saucepan and put in the cumin seeds and the chilli.
Step 4
When the cumin seeds start to splutter, put in the boiled potatoes and the salt and mix thoroughly.
Step 5
Now add in the sabudana, stir and cook on low heat for about 5 minutes stirring all the time. The sabudana should be very soft and slightly sticky when it's cooked.
Step 6
Garnish with coriander and serve hot with cold yoghurt.
