Sabudana Vada | How to make Sago Vada

Sabudana Vada

Sabudana Vada is a popular deep fried Maharashtrian snack made with Sago and Potato and spices. This makes an interesting evening snack or you could serve it for breakfast.

However, if you ask me I would never make it for breakfast as this vada is quite heavy and oily. Sabudana or Sago is a common ingredient in Amma’s pantry as she often makes Payasam with it. In fact, she loves Sagubiyam payasam. So this has never featured in any other form in our kitchen.

Somehow, I have never taken in by the Sagubiyam Payasam until recently and hence I don’t even stock it on a regular basis. Only when I plan to make something specific, I get it. Some years back Amma came to know about Sabudana Khichdi and she made it a couple of times. Even though I knew about it, I never attempted as there was never a taker for it.

So is this Vada which used to be frequently made in our office for an evening snack. I have eaten only then and never tried making at home. Just before including it on the list, I checked both the sites to make sure I haven’t already made it.

The first time I made, it was for a Saturday Lunch. It turned soft, so I froze the rest of the batch and again fried it. The second time the vadas turned out crispy. So for the third week of BM#104 Sweets & Snacks, where I am doing snacks of my choice with Vada Varieties, it is Sabudana Vada, while its yet another Rice Snacks traditionally made in South shared in Cooking 4 all Seasons.

  1. Sago vadas are delicious to snack on. I too hated sago kheer while growing up but somehow that is one of my favorite kheers now. I see that you have a quite list of recipes with sago in your space.
