Sabudana Wada is all time favourite Maharashtrian dish  liked by both of us . In Thane(Maharashtra), there are a lot of places where you get hot, delicious Sabudana Wada. It is very easy to prepare and requires very little preparation.

Sabudana /tapaico (Sago in English), is normally associated with fasting ( Navratri ,angarika and sankashti )and so naturally, Sabudana wada is popular on such days. But any other day is just as good to enjoy this comforting food. In fact, the vadaas are very crispy and crunchy and melt in your mouth.


1 cup Sabudana
1/2 cup Peanuts (roasted & crushed coarsely)
1-2 medium Potato (boiled, peeled & mashed)
3-4 Green Chilies (crushed)  (add chillies as per your spice level)
1-2 tspn roasted cumin seeds  
pinch of sugar
1tsp lemon juice
2 tbsp coriander leaves
Salt to taste

  • Wash sago thoroughly and drain excess water. Soak it for 2-3 hours with water level just equivalent to the level of sago ( sEE TIP 3)
  •  Add all ingredients to it except oil. Mix well into a dough.
  • Keep the oil in a deep frying pan to heat. Moist hands take a mixture from dough & make small flat vada

  • Slide the rounds in the heated oil on medium flame. Fry till they are crisp and light brown in color. (SEE TIP 1)
  • Drain them well on a tissue paper. Makes about 10 vadaas and Serve with  fasting peanut chutney or dahi chutney.

1 Fry vadas when the oil is piping hot to get crispy vadas.
2 Make vadas flat in shape rather than round so that vadas dont remain raw from inside. 
3.The correct amount of water for soaking sago is important as if you add more water sago becomes sticky & if you add less water it becomes dry)
