kusum gupta's Note:
From my cookbook 'Recipes with a Spice - Indian Cuisine for Balanced Nutrition' Sago or sabodana is made from tapioca and is widely used during the fasting days when no cereal is eaten. It replaces rice and flour in many dishes. Serve these patties hot. If cold, reheat in the oven at 375 degrees F, spread out on a cookie sheet, for 5 to 10 minutes until warm and crisp.
