Vegan Sabudana Tikki | Tapioca Patty

Vegan Sabudana Tikki or Tapioca is a very interesting dish that is made of Tapioca pearls extracted from Cassava roots. Cassava plant is native to Brazil which then spread to many other parts of the world. The plant which makes up for its fragility with seriously strong roots. There are rare occasions when a small 6-8 feet tall thin weed of a plant can have a root system that yields almost 200 kilograms of roots !
