SABUDANA VADA ( Vrat ka Khana)

Sabudana or Sago wada is a popular Maharashtrian snack. Mostly we make them during the fasting period. When serving on normal days you can add chillies and spices to make them chatpata.

Ingredients: Sabudana ...... 1 cup Potatoes ........... 3-4 small (boiled and mashed) Buck wheat flour .. 2 tbsp. (or barnyard millet flour) Black pepper powder .... 1/2 tsp. Rock salt ...................... to taste Amchoor powder ......... 1/2 tsp. Cumin seeds -------------- 1 tsp Oil


1. Soak the sabudana with enough water to cover for 3-4 hours.

2. Mix all the ingredients mentioned in the list except oil.

3. Make round balls with moist hands and flatten them a bit.

4. Deep fry and serve hot.
