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).

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.

Mirchi Thecha (maharashtrian green chilli garlic chutney)

Hello Everyone ! Today’s recipe is ‘Mirchi Thecha’. It is a very popular authentic maharashtrian green chilli garlic chutney. Traditionally, thecha is served with bajra roti or jawar roti. In this recipe I have used green chillies, garlic and coriander as my main ingredients.

Kolhapuri thecha is another version of thecha which is prepared by using dry red chillies.
