Sabudana Vada with a Hot Cup of Tea { Tapioca Fritters }

Fast or Feast!!!!!!....My husband is often confused between these two events whenever I am fasting :)

There are many special cuisines that are made just for the fasting days. Whether its Janmashtami, Navratris or fasting has always been a feast day, a day of celebration, for me as well as others. Different food, very light on stomach, with less spices and more one can say no.

Crispy and Crunchy Sabudana Fritters are one of my favorite tea-time snacks on my fasting days. Despite the fact that it is deep fried, it is actually very light and sumptuous.

Now these Fluffy Fritters goes perfect with a cup of hot tea. 


  • 1 cup Sabudana /Sago
  • 1 Potato, boiled, peeled & mashed
  • 1/2 cup Peanuts, roasted & crushed coarsely
  • 1-2 Green chillies, slitted
  • 1 tsp Cumin seeds
  • ¼ cup Rajgira flour (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons Chopped Coriander
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil to deep fry

  1. Wash the sabudana 2-3 times. Add water to soak and soften, keep the level just about 1-2 cms above the sabudana level. Cover and keep 6-8 hours. I normally soak it overnight.
  2. Mix the sabudana along with all the other ingredients and knead lightly to form a soft dough.
  3. Divide the mixture into 12 equal portions. Shape each portion into a round ball and flatten slightly.
  4. Deep-fry the vadas in hot oil on medium heat until they are golden brown in color and drain on absorbent paper.
  5. Best serve with hot tea or any kind of chutney.

Good chefs always taste their Recipe.....Go Ahead....And say Wow....
