1 cup sabudana (sago or tapioca pearls)
2 potatoes, boiled and mashed
1/4 cup roasted peanuts, coarsely crushed
1/4 cup coriander leaves, finely chopped
1 tsp salt
2 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1/2  tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp chaat masala
1/2 tsp amchoor powder
Oil as required, for deep frying

To begin with, clean and wash sabudana well.
Then, add approximately 1 cup of water and soak the sabudana for 2 hours, preferably. Drain the water completely ( if any) using a colander or strainer.
After that, in a bowl, add sabudana, mashed potatoes, roasted and crushed peanuts,  coriander leaves, salt, red chilli powder, coriander powder, garam masala, chaat masala, and amchoor powder.
Now mix well until it looks like dough.
Meanwhile, in a heavy bottom Kadai, heat the oil.
Then, take a spoonful of mixture in your palm and make tikkis depending upon the size you prefer.
I made small-size patties and from this mixture, I got 15-16 tikkis.
Once the oil is hot add the tikkis and deep fry them.
Once brown from one side, flip them and fry from the other side too till they are crisp and then take them out and drain onto absorbent towel/paper.
Repeat the same for all. 
Serve these sabudana tikkis hot with green chutney or tomato ketchup.
