Sabudana Vada or Sago Fritters is a deep fried Maharashtrian snack, served with either sweetened curd or green chutney. Best to have when it’s hot, unlike other deep fried snacks, along with a cup of tea.

These vadas are crispier outside and soft and mushy from inside. This snack is common among people who observe fasting during Navratri festival but with variation in ingredients.

In this recipe, I have used onion, which is totally optional, making it a no onion no garlic recipe.
Check out my other Sabudana or Sago recipe; Sabudana Khichdi.

 

Tip :

  •  I have mentioned the correct amount of water to soak the sago, but in case you happen to add more water, make sure you drain the excess water completely using a sieve or colander for 15-20 minutes. Any extra water will absorb a lot of oil and makes it soggy.

1. Wash and soak the dried sago pearl with the said amount of water for 4-5 hrs or overnight. You can even keep it overnight. If you are able to pinch the sago(as shown in 2nd photo), it’s perfectly soaked.

4. Apply some oil on your palm. Start pressing each ball between your palms to give it a vada shape shown in the picture. Deep fry 2-3 vadas at a time. Don’t overcrowd to avoid it from sticking to each other. Fry it for a minute on each side on medium flame. Take it out and drain on tissue paper.
