Today I am about to post a healthy and wholesome snack called as Sabudana Vada. Sabudana is none other than tapioca and vada means balls. sabudanas individually look like tiny white balls also coloured as pearls. They are very high in starch and therefore provides energy for a long day's work.Hope you like this simple yet tasty snack.
2 Cups Sabodana / Sagoo
2 Potatoes, boiled, peeled and mashed
1 tsp Ginger, finely chopped
1 1/2 tbsp Peanuts, roasted and slightly crushed
4-5 Green chillies, finely chopped
1 tsp Red chilly powder
1 tsp Cumin seeds
1/2 tsp Amchor powder
1 tbsp Green coriander leaves, finely chopped
Salt to taste
Oil for frying
Wash sabodana in a strainer in running water and drain out the water. Shift sagoo to a big bowl and pour water till it reaches the level of sagoo in the container. Let it soak for 2-3 hours. Later squeeze out the excess water from the sago by your hands and transfer the sagoo to a big vessel.
Now mix in the mashed potatoes and all the above mentioned ingredients except oil ;-). Mix well till you get a light and soft dough. Take little quantity in your hand and roll it into small balls (you can also flatten the round ball with your palm and make it patties shape).
Now heat oil in a pan and deep fry over medium flame till they turn light brown. Place these on paper tissues. Prick each ball with a toothpick and serve with tomato ketchup or with Green chutney.
