Sabudana Vada

Sabudana being loaded with carbohydrates (starch) is an ideal choice for fasting days. Most of the recipes are easy, quick and tasty. One such example is the Sabudana Vada, crispy and lightly spiced fritters of sago, potato and peanuts.

Quite happy with my first attempt. The vadas turned out crisp on the outside and soft inside without absorbing too much oil. Read on for the recipe -







Preparation Time - 15-20 mins

Ingredients -

  • 1/2 cup sabudana
  • 1 cup mashed potato
  • 1 tsp cornflour
  • 3-4 tbsp roasted and lightly crushed peanuts
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 1/2 tsp finely chopped green chilis
  • 1/2 tsp red chili powder
  • 1 tsp finely chopped coriander leaves
  • 1/2-1 tsp lemon juice
  • salt to taste
  • oil for deep frying


Preparation - Soak the sabudana overnight (or lesser time for smaller pearls). Strain to remove all excess water (this is important)

Take the sabudana in a mixing bowl. Add all other ingredients except for the oil. Mix into a dough.

Grease your palms with a little oil. Pinch small portions of the dough, roll into balls and flatten them. Make sure they are not very thick as the center will not be cooked properly.

Cooking - Heat sufficient oil in a wok. Add the flattened dics 2-3 at a time. Fry on both sides till light brown. Make sure that the flame is kept medium high so that the vadas do not absorb excess oil.

Remove from the wok and place on a paper towel to absorb the excess oil. Repeat for the remaining dough.

Serve hot with a chutney.




















Note - It is important to test the soaking time of the sabudana before making the vadas. The tiny varieties need only half an hour to become soft and mushy.
