Sabudana Vada –A Perfect Snack For Monsoon —-

This is a popular Maharashtrian snack  which is made of  sago /tapioca pearls or sabudana .

It is also served during fasting and these vada’s are soft from inside and crunchy on the outside

Grt to have during monsoon’s when it is raining profusely outside , with a hot cup of masala chai — total bliss —-

Main Ingredients :

  • 1 cup of sabudana (soaked overnight ) — Note :  the water level should be that of sabudana
  • 1 cup of boiled potatoes
  • 1/4 cup of peanuts
  • 1 tbsp of coriander leaves
  • 1 tsp of cumin or jeera powder
  • 1/2 tsp of minced garlic
  • 1 tsp of lemon juice
  • salt to taste


Wash and soak sabudana overnight .

Roast peanuts and grind them coarsely

Boil and mash the potatoes.

Mix together all the ingredients in a medium sized bowl .

Make balls out of the prepared mixture and flatten them on your palm  to make patties or vada.

Deep fry on hot oil until golden brown.

Drain and serve with chutney of your choice — here I have used coriander and pudina chutney
