SABUDANA WADA....

HI!!!! FRIENDS , I AM BACK .... I AM STILL QUITE BUSY , BUT WILL TRY TO PUT IN A RECIPE OR TWO AS AND WHEN I GET TIME... DID YOU MISS ME??? WILL BE GREAT TO HEAR FROM YOU ALL WHO REGULARLY READ MY BLOG



SABUDANA WADA, I am sure all Maharashtrian must be making this sometime time or the other especially during fasting days.

It’s my son’s favorite and usually a breakfast or snack item on his birthday.



INGREDIENTS

2 potatoes boiled and mashed
1 cup sago or sabudana soaked in just enough water to soak it.
¼ cup roasted and coarsely ground peanut powder
2 green chilies finely chopped
Finely chopped coriander
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp roasted and coarsely ground jeera or cumin powder (you can add whole jeera)
Salt to taste
Oil for frying

METHOD

Very easy to prepare!!!!!
Take a bowl and mix all the ingredients together.
Shape into round balls as shown in the picture.
Or you can flatten them
deep fry in hot oil.
Eat with green chutney or tomato ketchup.

This looks good but I do not know what sago or sabudana is. Can you tell a southern US girl what it is so maybe I can try this recipe? Thank you.

The recipe looks easy, can't wait to try it...how long does Sago has to be soaked?

Hi
I tried out the sabudana wada without the groundnuts. It was absolutely yummy. But one major problem....when i put the balls into the oil, the sabudana wada just broke apart, with the sabudana seperating into the oil. How do i solve this problem? Regards, sunita

Mahek said...

hi
friends
Thanks for your replies...
Sunita,
Such a thing has never happened with me but you could try using a little more of potato the next time you try them
and let me know

Hi Mahek, I tried vadas and turned out very well. My husband also liked it a lot. Keep on posting more recipes. Cheers!

Hi Mahek, I had earlier left a message saying my wada were breaking apart in the oil. I fond out where I was going wrong. The sabudana has to be soaked in just enough water. I was making the mistake of putting a lot of water and then removing the extra water. I dont know why it was breaking apart because I used to take off all the extra water.
But anyways, I thought I shud share this with you!

To prevent sabudana wadas from breaking up in the oil you can add 2 tbsp of corn flour while mixing the ingredients and then deep fry them.
