Sabudana vada / Pearl Sago Fritters / Healthy Snacks Recipes

Print Friendly and PDF
Sabudana vada:   Like us on Youtube for more Video Recipes
Sabudana Vada  or  Pearl  Sago  Fritters  is a crispy & delicious snack of North India...!!
It is a filling & nutritious snack , that makes a best accompaniment along with hot cuppa chai or coffee. We know sabudana is a rich source of fibre contents, so this recipe is a great way of incorporating the benefits of sabudana into a delectable crispy snack. 
The main ingredients used for spicy healthy taste of this vada are cumin pwd, red chilly pwd , etc. It is often served hot with  green chutney  or  coconut chutney. 
Be sure to prepare enough, as the crunchy & melt in the mouth taste of these vadas, will vanish in no minutes, leaving us to crave for more...:)
Ingredients:
  • Sabudana                                 - 1 ½ cups
  • Potatoes                                     - 1 big
  • Peanuts roasted                        - ¾ cup
  • Cumin pwd                                - ½ tsp
  • Red chilly pwd                          - ½ tsp
  • Curry leaves                              - 6 to 8 finely chopped
  • Coriander leaves                       - 3 tsp chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil to fry
Method: 
  1. Clean, wash & soak the sabudana in a little water, just enough to cover it.
  2. Allow to soak overnight or for 5 to 6 hrs
  1. You can see all the water is been absorbed and the sabudana is swelled.
  2. Drain the excess water completely.
  3. Boil, peel the skin of potates, mash it  & keep ready.
  1. Take roasted peanuts, remove the husk.
  2. Grind it to coarse pwd.. ( I used rolling pin to grind .
  1. Now add the sago, mashed potatoes, cumin pwd, red chilly pwd, salt, crushed peanuts, curry leaves & cilantro.
  2. Mix carefully not to mash the sago.
  1. Make small balls with this mixture, flatten them a bit and set aside.
  1. Heat oil in a fry pan.
  1. When the oil is smoky hot, turn the flame to medium & fry these flattened pieces.
  1. Fry until they turn golden brown on both sides.
  1. Drain on paper towels
  1. It makes a lipsmacking combo with hot cup of tea or coffee.
 Enjoy the yummy delectable cripsy snack now..:)

Note:
  • Like any other Vadas, It is best when eaten fresh.
  • Green chillies chopped finely,  can also be used instead of red chilly pwd.

  72. Hy Honey, CJ food stories,
    The english name of sabudana is Pearl Sago or Tapioca. These small grains, when cooked turn pale & transsculent. Its a flavorless, colorless, odorless starch extracted from the raw tapioca roots.
    You can get pearl sago in any Indian
    stores nearby your place.
    do giv a try.:)

    ReplyDelete
  73. Jay, since I'm unfamiliar with sabudana, I looked it up on Wikipedia and came up with this... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sabudana. This dish seems quite easy to make and since I'm a big tapioca fan, I think I'd like the little pearls you use in this dish. Nice job on the photos as always.

  89. Thank you, Jay, for your lovely comments on my little blog. Yummy post! I've never heard of Sabudana before and now will keep a sharp eye out for it in our grocery stores. Is it actually a grain? Curious. Again, thank you, Lois.

  90. I have never experimented much with tapioca, but I do see that it is a popular selling item in some of the asian shops around here. Using this ingredient for fritters is something I have never seen before, so I do find it very creative. It does look very tasty in those stunning photos! Have a great day.
