Serves 4 People

IngredientsQuantities
Sabudana2 Cups
Potato2 Nos
SaltTo taste
Ginger Chopped1 tbsp
Chopped Green chillies1 tsp
Jeera powder1 tsp
Coriander leaves chopped1 tbsp
Fried Curry leaves5 leaves
OilFor frying

Method:

  1. Add 2 cups of sabudana in a bowl and rinse them twice. Drain the water and soak them in 3 cups of water for about 2 hours. Until they will be soft and mash easily with your fingers
  2. Drain out the water completely and set aside in a strainer to remove excess water.
  3. Boil 2 medium-sized potatoes.
  4. Once, the potatoes are boiled, allow them to cool, peel and mash the potatoes.
  5. In a mixing bowl, add the mashed potatoes, soaked sabudana, salt, chopped ginger, chopped ginger, jeera powder, chopped coriander leaves.
  6. Mix everything well, if the mixture is sticky slightly grease your fingers with oil.
  7. Make equal sized balls from the dough.
  8. Grease your palms with oil and flatten the sabudana mixture and line them in a platter with aluminium foil/ greased plate.
    Ensure the vada’s aren’t too thick or thin. As the vada would puff up after frying, very thick vada would not cook completely.
  9. Heat oil in a kadai (Check the temperature by dropping a little of the mixture into the oil. The dough must rise and not sink in the oil. Ensure the vada does not break.
  10. Gently slide 2 to 3 sabudana vadas into the hot oil. Allow them to fry over medium heat for a few minutes. Until they are firm, flip the vada to the other side and fry until golden brown.
  11. Repeat step 10 in 2 or 3 batches.
  12. After frying dab the vadas on a kitchen paper to remove the excess oil.
  13. Garnish with fried curry leaves.
  14. Serve with Coriander chutney.
