Sabudana Vada (Sago Patties)

sabudana vada

Sabudana vada is mainly eaten during fasting period especially Navratri or Ekadashi fasts (vrat). They are so delicious that I sometimes make them with our evening tea. Some vrat ka khana are so tasty that everyone wants to eat them fasting or non- fasting. Sabudana vada is more popular in Maharashtra.
Recipe of sabudana vada/ sago patties
1 cup sabudana (sago/ saboodana/ tapioca)
1/2 cup peanuts- dry roasted and coarsely grinded
2 potatoes- boiled, peeled and mashed
3-4 green chillies- chopped
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves (cilantro) - chopped
Oil to shallow fry
1. Wash sabudana in a colander or a strainer. Drain. Soak sabudana in that much water in which it is 'just immersed' and no more. Let it soak for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
2. Mix well all the above ingredients in a bowl except oil.
3. Wet your hands and take tennis ball size balls from the sabudana mixture. Flatten them to form patties.
4. Heat oil in a flat, wide pan and shallow fry these patties or wada in it till golden from both sides. Drain using a slotted spoon, on an absorbent paper. Shallow fry vadas in batches. Serve sabudana vada hot.
