Sabudana wada

This one of my favourite dishes.... Being from maharashtra I have grow eating this dish.....Any restaurant in Mumbai will have this in their menu.This wada is eaten for fasts (Vrath) specially by maharashtrians. My mom used to make this often. When the mixture is made for the vada, it emits such a nice and sweet smell that u feel hungry then n there.... hmmm love this dish...:)

What you need :

Saboodana (Indian pearl sago) - 1 cup
Jeera (cumin seeds) - 1tsp
Peanuts - 1/2 cup roasted and crushed coarsely
Potato - 1 boiled,peeled and diced
Green chillies finely chopped - 4 or 5
salt to taste
oil to deep fry
Cornflour (optional) - 1 tbsp


Wash the sago and drain excess water. Soak it for 2-3 hour.After 1 hr of soaking, sprinkle around half a cup water on it .Keep it aside for 2-3 hours. Loosen the Sago with ur hand to remove the lumps. Now tou can feel the sago, which must have become soft and rubbery to touch.
Now to this Sago add all the other ingredients except oil and mix it well. Now with moist hand, make patties of round shape.Make all the patties and keep it aside for 5 minutes.

Heat oil in a kadhai. Now, deep fry the wadas in hot oil on medium flame. This will take some time, but be patient.Turn it once or twice in between until both sides are cooked well and are golden brown in colour and crisp. Drain on kitchen paper napkins to remove the excess oil. Always remember to do this, so that all the excess oil is sucked in by the paper towel, and the wadas remain crisp to eat.Your wadas are ready.

Serve hot with sweet yoghurt, green chutney or tomato ketchup.
