sabudana , beetroot tikki / साबूदाना और चुकंदर की टिक्की

First time I had sabudana khichdi when I was young, my cousin had made it for me on ekadashi vrat and that's how i came to know about sabudana which is also called sago.
Sabudana is actually a form of topiaco which is also known as cassava root. 
It is refer to the starch that is extracted from topiaco roots which is then proccesed to form spherical pearls and then the pearls are produced by passing the moist starch and sieve under pressure and then dried.
It can be used in various dishes like khichdi,  vada , poori,  kheer and laddo.
In vada you can also add some healthy veggies like carrot, beetroot,  spinach.

Beetroot is a root vegetable packed with essential nutritious, great source of fiber, potassium, iron etc.
Beetroot has been identified as super food due to its immense nutritional value. 

Just added a healthy ingredient in my sabudana vada and the taste is yumm, normally we make the sabudana vada in fasting days with potato, sabudana, spices, coriander, chili and peanuts. but here i gave a healthy twist and added beetroot in my sabudana vada.
