Sabudana Vada is a crispy delicious snack made by deep frying spiced sabudana and potato cutlets. This is traditionally a Maharashtrian recipe, but is now widely enjoyed across other parts of the country as well.
Sabudana vada is a popular recipe for vrats/fasts as it contains no onion and garlic. Sabudana (also known as sago or tapioca) is one of the most common ingredients used for making recipes for vrats during festivals like Navratras.
These vadas can be made as a snack or an appetizer. These are also popularly served on Indian Street Food stalls. These are typically served with curd, Tamarind Chutney, Coriander Chutney or even tomato ketchup.

  8. Fry the patties in medium hot oil till they turn golden brown. Do not set the heat to a high setting, otherwise the vadas will not get cooked properly from the inside. Drain the excess oil on an absorbent paper.
