Sabudana Vada (Crispy tapioca fritters)

Sabudana vada

     Sabudana vada, is a traditional deep fried snack from Maharashtra usually eaten in fasting days. These are crunchy from outside and soft from the inside which just melts in mouth. Its usually served with green chutney but I like to serve it with yogurt peanut chutney .The contents are just the same as Sabudana khichdi I posted in my earlier post. The difference being ,in this dish boiled potatoes are used and in more quantity ,roasted peanuts are also used in generous amount which gives a nice crunch to vadas .

What can be more better than a cuppa hot tea in this monsoon .....


     Sabudana 1 Cup (tapioca, sago, soaked in water and drained 3-3 hrs.)
    Green chilies 2-3 Medium, finely chopped
    Boiled Potatoes 2-3 medium
    Peanuts 1⁄2 Cup, (Roasted and coarsely pounded)
    Cumin seeds 1 Teaspoon (jeera)
    Sendha Namak(fasting salt) or Salt  To Taste
    Oil 2 Tablespoon
    Lemon juice 1 Tablespoon
    Finely chopped Coriander 1Tablespoon


  • Wash and soak the sabudana for five minutes then drain the water and keep aside at least for 2-3 hours.
  • To this add mashed boiled potatoes, chopped green chilies, salt, cumin seeds ,roasted ponded peanuts. chopped coriander and lemon juice and mix well until all the ingredients are incorporated well.
  • Divide into equally lemon sized balls, flatten between palms of your hands.
  • Heat sufficient oil in a pan or kadai and deep fry the vada till golden brown.
  • Serve hot with your choice of chutney.
  • Enjoy!!!!
