Sabudana means Sago, It’s a fasting food in India. Many dishes can be made with Sabudana such as Kheer, Thalipeeth, Khicdi and more. I made this today for Breakfast. I don’t usually fast, so it doesn’t give me chance to make Sabudana dishes. I have made this Sabudana Vada, typically eaten during fasting time. Very simple, Crispy from outside and soft from inside. I haven’t use any other ingredients which are not considered to be eaten during fasting, therefore feel free to cook this without hesitation.
2 cup soaked Sago( wash and keep water only to immerse sago and keep it for 3 to 4 hrs or till soft.)
2 large sized boiled potato. ( smashed)
1/2 cup grounded roasted peanuts.
2 to 3 green chili chopped
1 tsp cumin seeds(optional)
Coriander chopped ( optional)
salt to taste
a bowl of water
Oil enough to deep fry
- Mix soaked sabudana, roasted peanuts, green chili, and mashed potato. Mix well and let everything incorporate.
- Make small balls and make a flat round. Make sure these rounds should not contain crack if occurs dip your palm in water and then try making rounds of the mixed sabudana dough.
- Heat oil in kadai, sufficient enough to deep fry.
- Deep fry flat balls of sabudana till golden brown from both the side on medium to high flame.
- Done!! enjoy eating with yogurt or curd or chutneys you like.
