While the mixture for this sago thalipeeth for vrat and sabudana vada is the same, the cooking techniques are different. The former is flattened and cooked on a tava, while the latter is shaped into flat balls and deep fried, thus giving 2 recipes which are unique in texture in their own way.

When flattened and cooked on a tava, you get a tasty and filling Indian farali thalipeeth. This is sure to keep you energised on a fasting day. You can pair it with a bowl of dahi or peanut curd chutney. You can also try other faral recipes like the Rajgira Paneer Paratha or Potato Khichdi.

While adding mashed potatoes, ensure that there is no moisture in them. Presence of moisture might not bind the mixture well. Also ensure that the potatoes are not hot. This might partially cook the sago grains and make the mixture sticky. 3. Use a thick plastic sheet as we have used. 4. Remember to grease the pan each time. 5. If you think that the thalipeeth is tearing while cooking, add little arrowroot flour or water chestnut flour (singhare ka atta) to the mixture. This helps in binding the sago mixture.
