Sabudana vadas are a popular Maharashtrian snack. Soaked sabudana or sago mixed with select spices, crushed peanuts and boiled potatoes are shaped into vadas and fried till the outside is crunchy while the inside remains soft and mushy. Tastes great with green coconut chutney or sweetened yogurt or both!
Soak the sabudana, in enough water to cover it, for about two hours.
Drain off excess water. Mix together sabudana, potatoes, peanuts, green chillies, coriander leaves, lemon juice and salt.
Heat the oil in a kadhai and deep-fry the vadas on a medium flame till they turn light brown in colour from both the sides. Drain on absorbent paper.
Serve hot with green chutney and sweet curds.
