    Prep:1hr  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Extra time:1hr soaking  ›  Ready in:2hr20min 

    1. Soak sago in water for an hour or so , or till the sagos are double in size.
    2. Drain off all the water and keep it aside. (Depending on the quality, sometimes the sago needs to be soaked overnight in a little bit of water).
    3. Cut the raw bananas and the potatoes in halves or three pieces, and boil them in a pressure cooker. Take care not to over cook them. Add a little salt to the water before boiling.
    4. Mash the boiled raw bananas and the boiled potatoes.
    5. Add salt to taste, add the ginger-garlic paste and the chopped chillies.
    6. Now combine the chopped coriander leaves, masala powder, cumin powder, and the lemon juice.
    7. Make small balls of the mixture and flatten them (patties). Now, cover the patties with the drained sago, just a bit here and there, so that it acts as a covering while frying them.
    8. Heat some refined oil or clarified butter (ghee) in a pan. Shallow fry the patties till golden brown.
    9. Serve the patties (hot) with some mango pickle or any green chutney- coriander or mint.


    Cover the patties with sagoo here and there so that when you fry them, the sagoos appear as as small balls stuck on the patties.
