I  hunt for fasting recipes a lot due to my husbands biweekly fast.  Everybody loves famous batata wada pav of mumbai with garlic chutney.But today we are making a batata wada for fasting .So thought of posting this upwas recipe which is really yummy.Earlier I have posted recipe for fasting raw banana (plaintain) wadas . You can serve these wadas with fasting yoghurt chutney / peanut chutney / upwas coconut chutney .


Boiled potatoes  -2/3 ( 1 cup)
1tsp - lemon juice
Peanut powder (shengdana kut) - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1 tsp
Ginger green chilli thecha - 1 tsp
coriander leaves (kothimbir) - 2 tsp
jeera (cumin) - 1 tsp
jeera powder (cumin powder) - 1 tsp
Salt as per taste

Outer covering :

Shingada ata (Water Chestnut flour) /rajgira (Amaranthus) flour/upwas bhajani flour /sabudana (tapioca) flour   ( I tried with mixture of 
home made sabudana flour & home made upwas bhajani)  -4-5 tbsp


   1.Pressure cook the potatoes  in cooker.Allow to cool remove skin .Smash the potatoes.

    2.Add peanut powder,salt ,sugar, ginger -chilli paste,lemon juice,coriander,jeera ,jeera powder to potatoes & mix well.

    3.Make small  flat vadas from the above dough as seen in picture.

 4. Take home made sabudana flour & home made upwas bhajani in 1:1 ratio (ie for 1 measure of sabudana flour use 1 measure of upwas bhajani) in a bowl      Add 1 tsp salt & water & mix well to prepare a batter of running consistency (not too thick or thin).

    5. Dip vadas in  above batter & deep fry in oil.

    6. Serve with  upwas-chutney.


1. Fry the vadas on medium heat since they will turn brown very fast.
2.For outer covering you can use any of the following flours - Shingada ata (Water Chestnut flour) /rajgira (Amaranthus) flour/upwas bhajani flour /sabudana (tapioca) flour
