“Sabudana Vada” is a traditional deep fried snack very popular in the Maharashtra, in Western India.
These deep fried vadas are very crunchy on the outside and have a really soft core, usually served along with Green coriander chutney and a cup of hot tea.
Not to forget Sabudana Vada is also a preferred snack during religious fasting /vrat/ upvaas.
Sabudana – 1 cup
Potato, boiled – 2 medium
Peanuts, roasted – 1/3rd cup
Green chillies, medium hot, chopped – 2-3
Ginger, grated – 1 teaspoon
Yogurt / Dahi – 2 tablespoon
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying
Rinse sabudana well with water, add yogurt to the washed sabudana, mix well and add enough water ensuring that the sabudanas are well immersed and let them soak overnight or at least for 5-6 hours. Once the sabudana have been soaked well they will absorb all the water and swell up and turn soft.
Dry roast the peanuts in a kadhai or pan until well roasted and the skin starts to split. Transfer onto a kitchen towel and let it cool, discard the skin and grind it coarsely.
