Sabudana Cutlets

Sabudana cutlets is a dish very common to all the states of India. Almost prepared in a similar manner all across, these cutlets are consumed mostly during the fasts or any other religious function.


Prepared using Sago pearls, it is one beautiful dish which every person loves.


I was introduced to this dish almost 8 years ago by my then “Future Mom-in-law” :D. Yes. These Sabudana cutlets hold a very beautiful memory of my life. I was in college and me and Abhishek, both were college mates as well as from the same city. He used to visit my home often during vacations and the best treat was something or other cooked by his Mom.. πŸ™‚ As we (His mom and me) share mutual love for cooking so life was sorted. One day he brought these crispy beautiful cutlets and I was like –

Kriti: Woo…what’s this?
Abhishek: Sabudana k cutlets
Kriti: Kaise bante hain…
Reply was as usual Β πŸ˜€
Abhishek: Pata nahi!

Hahahahaha.. Yes this is our life. I am over passionate for cooking while my husband has simply no interest in cooking or eating. Pheew!!!!Β Can you guys believe what’s his favorite dish is ? Its – Plain Rice with Plain Curd.Β (Complete silence) And till date I wonder – How can someone eat without any flavors,not even salt … Anyways – His Life. His Way! πŸ˜€

So that was the day when I fell in love with these cutlets and now it has become a ritual at my home also to prepare it at least once a month. πŸ™‚
