Sabudana Vada (Sago fritters/vada)

Hello my foodies friends ! Today’s recipe is ‘Sabudana Vada’. It is a deep-fried snack which is made from sabudana/sago. In Maharashtra this is second most common vada dish after Aloo vada / vada pav, there it is served with sweet curd (curd mix with sugar). After sabudana khichdi this is my second favourite sabudana dish. You can also have this dish during fast/vrat by replacing normal salt with black salt.

Sabudana Vada

Sabudana Vada are crunchy from outside and soft from inside. They just melt in mouth and trust me that feeling is divine (at least for me :P) . Main ingredients of this dish are sabudana/sago, peanuts, potatoes.  Preparation time of this dish more than its cooking time, as you need to soak sabudana for at least 4-5 hours. In winter season or during monsoon have sabudana vada as tea time snack.

Sabudana Khichdi (Vrat/fast recipe)

Hi everyone ! Today’s recipe is ‘Sabudana Khichdi’. This recipe is prepared by using only those ingredients which are allowed during vrat/fast. Sabudana khichdi is my childhood favourite dish. I still sometime have craving of this dish. 😀 This is an easy snack/breakfast dish.

Sabudana Khichdi

Sabudana Khichdi

Sabudana khichdi is a very popular dish of western and northern states of India. It is a perfect dish when someone is observing a fast(vrat). Sabudana is a Hindi word for Pearl tapioca. Sabudana are very rich source of carbohydrates and that’s make it a perfect choice for fast. When we add roasted peanuts in the recipe, proteins present in the peanuts makes it a balanced dish.

Few things that you should keep in mind when preparing this dish:

  • Soaking time of sabudana/ Pearl tapioca varies according to its variety.
  • For some you need to soak them overnight or for at least 3-4 hours and for some varieties it will take only half an hour.
  • If you feel that your khichdi is undercooked, then add half a cup of milk and cover and cook till milk disappeared.
  • Few people mix sabudana, peanuts and salt separately. However, I add them one by one in my recipe. If you find first way more comfortable, you can use that.
  • Check whether you need to soak for a longer time or your sabudana will take more time. Press sabudana in between your finger, if you can mash it easily, it is ready.
  • I never use boiled potatoes for my recipe, but if you have boiled potatoes you can use for this khichdi.
