Sabudana Vada is a typical Maharashtrian snack that consists of patties that are deep-fried until crisp and golden and are made of mashed potatoes, roasted peanuts, and soaked tapioca pearls. Many Hindus fast during Ekadashi and Navratri in accordance with tradition. Some people just consume milk, some only fruits, and yet others only eat one meal a day.

These crisp vadas, in addition to Sabudana khichdi and Sabudana kheer, are a unique treat.

What are sabudana?

Sago, sometimes referred to as sabudana, are white pearly spheres produced by the roots of the cassava plant (tapioca, yuca). They go by the name tapioca pearls and are eaten during the Hindu fasting season. These white tapioca pearls are known as “sabudana,” a Hindi word, in North, Central, and Western India. In the regional South Indian languages like Telugu, these are known as sagubiyyam, javvarisi in Tamil, sabbakki in Kannada, chowari in Malayalam, and javvarisi in Kannada. Sabudana has a lot of carbohydrates and is basically pure starch. They are a part of the fasting meal since they make you feel satisfied for a longer period of time. Sabudanas are deep-fried patties made with potatoes, roasted peanuts, tapioca pearls, and additional spices, herbs, and seasonings. The patties are deliciously crunchy.

Tips and tricks to prepare sabudana vada recipe

  • Make sure the oil is hot enough to prevent the vada from cracking when it is being fried. 
  • After dropping the vada into the oil, wait about a minute before stirring them. They could crack if you stirred them right away.
  • Sago (sabudana) must be deeply well-soaked. Effective drainage of the water is required. The vadas won’t form correctly and will get mushy if the mixture contains moisture. As a result, they will soak up a lot of oil and might even melt away in the hot oil.
  • Mint leaves and finely sliced onion are suitable additions to the dish.
  • If you like the vadas to be spicy, you can also add pepper powder and red chilli powder to the recipe.
  • Roasted nuts can either added as a a whole or can be slightly crushed.
  • Potatoes can aslo be mashed and added to the mixture.
  • Rice flour can be added for the additional crispiness and texture of the sabudana vada recipe.
  • Make sure the vadas are neither overly thick or thin. Vada will not fully cook if it is too thick, and it may become too crunchy or break if it is too thin.
  • Sabudana vadas can also be shallow-fried; simply heat the oil over medium heat and add the vadas sparingly. Once the bottom has turned golden, flip it over and cook the other side until it is also golden. Drain, then transfer to a plate covered with paper towels.
