Chili Sabudana Vada

Today is MahaShivaratri, which celebrates in honour of Lord Shiva . So, today there is fasting food in my kitchen, a crunchy hot Sabudana Vada, also called "sago vada", is a traditional deep fried snacks from Maharashtra . which often served with curd/chutney and masala chai.


  1. Sabudana:-------- 250gm ( washed and soaked overnight with little water)
  2. Peanuts:---------- 1 cup ( roasted and grated )
  3. Potatoes:------- -- 3-4 medium (boiled and mashed)
  4. Coriander:-------- 1/2 cup 
  5. Cumin seeds:----- 1tbsp (roasted)
  6. green chilli's:------- 6-7 (depends on you taste)
  7. 1/2 lemon.
  8. soda 2 pinch.
  9. salt to taste.
  10. oil to fry.


  1. In a big bowl add soaked sabudana, and mash it.
  2. Then add potatoes and grated peanuts. mix it roughly.
  3. Make a paste of coriander, cumin, green chilli (don't add water)
  4. Mix the mixture in sabudana bowl and mash it properly by adding salt and soda.
  5. When you want to make vada, squeeze lemon and make a small patty.
  6. Fry in medium flame of oil. Fry it till it changes colour.


  1.  Basically sabudana should soak atleast 6-7hrs, but if you want it within 2-3 hrs, then soak them in warm water.
  2.  If you want to make vada's for kids don't put chilli, rest will be the same.
  3.  You can add 2tbsp rice flour (will be not for fasting)
  4.  Be careful, when your frying the vada's sometime they pop's in oil.
  5.  While making a patty put some oil in your palm.
