Sabudana Vada

Sabudana Vada needs no introduction. They are prepared using Sabudana/ sago/ Tapioca pearls, Peanut powder, boiled potatoes and few other ingredients like green chilies and ginger. These vadas are crispy from outside and soft from inside. Believe me, they are so addictive that they are gone as soon as you take them out of kadhai! 

I am also sharing a recipe for quick and easy Yogurt chutney that goes well with these Vadas. Sabudana Vadas are very popular in Maharashtra and are typically prepared for Vrat/ Fast/ Upwas. You can also serve them as starters for any dinner party and be assured that they will be a big hit! So many of my friends have asked me for this recipe after trying them at my place and have tried preparing them and loved them. Today I am happy to share this recipe with you all. Hope you all will like it too. Do leave a comment and let me know.


For the Vadas-

Sabudana/ Sago- 1 cup

Peanut powder- 3/4 cup

Potatoes- 2 medium sized, boiled

Green Chilies- 2 or 3

Ginger- 1 inch piece

Cumin seeds- 1 teaspoon

Red Chili powder- 1 teaspoon

Lemon- juice of half lemon

Corinder leaves- 1/4 cup, chopped finely

Salt as per taste

Oil for frying

For Chutney-

Yogurt/ Curd- 1 cup

Milk- 1/4 cup (optional)

Peanut powder- 4 tablespoon

Sugar- 1 tablespoon

Cumin powder- 1/2 teaspoon

Red Chili powder- 1/4 teaspoon

Salt as per taste.

  • Take 1 cup of Sabudana. Sago/ Tapioca Pearls. Rinse them properly at least 2 times  and then soak it in just enough water to dip the Sabudana pearls.
  • Let the Sabudana pearls soak for at least 5-6 hours and preferably for 8 hours.
  • Boil 2 potatoes.
  • Chop 2-3 green chilies and 1 inch piece ginger. Add green chilies, ginger and 1 teaspoon cumin seeds in a blender jar. Grind to coarse chutney.
  • In a bowl, take soaked Sabudana pearls. Fluff them so that each pearl is separate. Add 3/4 cup of ground Peanut Powder.
  • Add 2 boiled potatoes, mashed or grated.
  • Add the Green chilies and ginger chutney to the mix.
  • Add salt as per taste and 1 teaspoon red chili powder.
  • Add juice of 1/2 lemon. Add 1/4 cup Coriander leaves chopped finely.
  • Mix everything properly and divide it in to small lemon sized balls. In given proportions, you can make about 16-18 lemon balls.
  • Heat oil for frying in a Kadhai/ pan on medium heat.
  • Till our oil is heating, let us shape the vadas. Take each ball between your palms and press gently to make flat and round vadas.
  • Once all the vadas are shaped, cover with damp cloth or Paper towel.
  • Fry them few at a time on medium heat. Make sure you don't fry on low heat as the vadas will become too oily but at the same time, don't fry the vadas on high flame too as they will be dark brown from outside and remain uncooked from inside.
  • In the same way, fry all the vadas.
  • Serve it with chutney prepared using yogurt.
Now let us prepare chutney.
For Chutney-
  • Take 1 cup yogurt/ curd in a bowl. Add 1/4 cup milk if the yogurt is very thick.
  • Add salt as per taste. Add 1 tablespoon sugar, 4 tablespoon ground peanut powder, 1/2 teaspoon cumin powder and 1/4 teaspoon red chili powder.
  • Mix everything nicely.
  • Serve hot Sabudana Vadas with this simple yet tasty chutney! Enjoy!

Some recipes that I learnt from my parents, some from my friends and their moms. Some I got from recipe books and some I got from internet.
