Sabudana Vada | Fasting Recipe

What is sabudana vada?

Sabudana vada is a patty that is made up of sabudana i.e. sago. It has the flavor of peanuts, ginger, coriander and green chilies. The best part about this recipe is the contrast of textures that is it offers. It is super crunchy and crispy from the outside and soft from inside with some bytes of peanuts and ginger. Sabudana vada can easily be prepared during fasting, apart from that it also makes a very good option for breakfast or tea time snacks. I love to make sabudana for Janmashtami, Navratri etc.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for sabudana vada

Sabudana vada calls for sabudana. It is very important to use good quality of sabudana. Apart from that, it is also important to soak it properly. Almost each sabudana recipe except the desserts made using sabudana, calls for one ingredient that is peanuts. Peanuts give an awesome bite to the dish and also ensure that the preparation doesn’t become soggy and crumbly. Apart from that, some fresh ingredients such as ginger, green chili, coriander, and lemon juice are added. There is no use of red chili powder in this recipe. To provide the binding to the mixture boil potatoes are added.
Another sabudana recipe close to this one but made with less oil is sabudana tikki. View the recipe here. You might also like sabudana khichadi recipe. View it here.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
