Sabudana Vada / Sago Vada

My mother loves sabudana in any form - whether its kichidi or whether its  vada(dumplings) or kheer….she loves it…..especially  sabudana  kichidi made by her elder sister P. .....So she was elated when I decided I was to make sabudana  vada today.

The sago vadas came out golden brown and crisp…The recipe I used mentioned using lime juice which I omitted .Well the vada tasted equally good without the lemon juice too….Aniket got up from his sleep rubbing his eyes….he sniffed…something wonderful was cooking in the kitchen? He peeped in ……he asked me to lift him up so that he could see what’s cooking….I fed him a little piece of the vada….yes he loved the vadas too….

So that was our tea time snack today….yummy sabudana  vadas…want to eat some?


Sago-1 cup
Potatoes-1/2 cup mashed
Roasted peanuts-1 cup(without skin)
Green chilli paste-1 tsp
Salt to taste.

After 6 hrs drain of excess water .Boil potatoes and mash it.Add little salt to it

  1. Very interesting blog. A lot of blogs I see these days don't really provide anything that attract others, but I'm most definitely interested in this one. Just thought that I would post and let you know.
