- Make equal sized balls from the dough.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Repeat step 10 in 2 or 3 batches.
- After frying dab the vadas on a kitchen paper to remove the excess oil.
- Garnish with fried curry leaves.
