Crispy Crunch Sabudana Vadas
As a kid the best part of my Mom’s fasts were the crispy and crunchy Sabudana vadas- we all love these vadas. Here in Hyderabad they call Sabud Dana – Sago too.
These Vadas are usually deep fried but I made them like we make Tikkis and shallow fried them for myself- they tasted as good as the deep fried ones- my husband refused to compromise though- he went with the deep fried ones.
Sabud Dana (Tapioca) – 1.5 Cup
Potatoes- Boiled and mashed- 3
Green Chilies finely chopped- as per taste
Ginger paste- 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil for frying
Wash the Sabudana and strain any excess water out. Now soak it for 2-3 hours in water. Drain the water out and mix the Sabudana with boiled and mashed potatoes, salt, green chilies, and ginger paste. You can add a pinch of red chili to this if you wish to. Now make small flat round balls out of the mixture.
Heat oil in a frying pan and slide the vadas in it. Fry the vadas until they turn golden brown. Take them out when done.
Serve hot with Coriander Chutney or Curd – relish them!
