sabakki paddu, sabudana paniyaram

Sabakki paddu or sabbakki guliyappa recipe explained with step by step pictures and a quick video. Sabakki paddu is familiar by different names like sabbakki guliyappa, sabudana appe, sago paniyaram, saggubiyyam gundponglu, javarisi paniyaram etc., Sabakki paddu or Sabudana appe is very healthy and tasty. Sabakki paddu is prepared using soaked sago pearls, fine rava, chopped onion, ginger, green chili, curry leaves and coriander leaves.

This is a healthy alternate for deep fried sabakki or sabudana vada. I love paddu pan or appe pan. I have posted few recipes on this website, which makes use of this pan. They are normal paddu, sabsige soppu paddu or dill leaves appe and sweet banana paddu recipes.

I learnt this recipe from my Mother-in-law. She also prepares sabakki sandige or fryums. I will try to share that recipe soon. I have already posted sabakki payasa or sabudana kheer recipe on this website.

To prepare paddu or guliyappa or paniyaram or appe, a different type of pan with pits is used. You can prepare this for the breakfast or as a healthy evening snacks. I use sabakki or sabudana or tapioca pearls in moderation as it is filled with carbohydrates and is a good source of protien. So one can use this for weight gain.
