Method

  1. Soak sabudana in just enough water to cover it, for at least 4 hrs.
  2. Cook the potatoes and mash it well. Crush the peanuts in a mixer.
  3. Mix all the ingredients in the ingredients section except oil. Shape into small lemon-sized balls and flatten them a bit like a vada. Deep-fry in oil until golden brown flipping to the other side in between. Serve hot with peanut chutney.

Tips:

If the vada breaks apart in oil try mixing 2 tbsp corn flour to the dough or add more mashed potato.

  • Its my FAVOURITE Marathi snack..the last time i passed by Pune I got myself five plates of it..its an awesome jelly like snack..we can eat it with chopped raw fruits or with sweetened curd. I of course mix them both .. i add the fruits to the sweetened curd and have the vada dipped in it and to top it .you should have that special brand of Pune Tea..unavailable elsewhere except in Sadashiv Peth , Pune 🙂
    trust me ..AWESOME !!

  • yday i tried 2 make this,it was a real flop,it didn’t come as u made,all went apart in the oil,can u help me with some tip to try my luck next time.

  • We are really sorry about that, Raj. We don’t have any clue of what went wrong with this recipe but we will definitely share some tips with you. To prevent sabudana vadas from breaking up in the oil, you can add around 2 tbsp of corn flour while mixing the ingredients. You could also try adding more potato next time (2 medium instead of one large). Thanks for the feedback, Raj. We will share these tips in the post too. Let us know how they came out next time.
