Sabudana vada, also called 'sabu vada', is a traditional deep fried snack from Maharashtra, India. It is often served with spicy green chutney and along with hot chai and is best eaten fresh. In other parts of the country, Sabudana vada are the best option to have when fasting


  • 1 cup Sabudana.
  • 5 medium-sized potatoes, boiled
  • 1/2 cup roasted peanuts
  • 2 green chillies, finely chopped
  • 1 lemon’s juice
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp bhuna jeera (cumin powder)
  • Salt ,to taste
  • A handful of coriander leaves, finely chopped

  • Wash and drain the sabudana, allowing it to stand in a vessel for 5-6 hours, preferably overnight; ensure that sabudana is not left wet at all, else it will turn lumpy (when soaked sabudana will swell up after 5-6 hours)

  • Boil the potatoes and grate/mash them in a large bowl; mix well with your hands

  • Crush the roasted peanuts with a pestle in a mortar; mix it with the spices, coriander leaves, lemon juice and green chilies

  • Combine the spiced peanuts, mashed potatoes and sabudana; ensure all ingredients are uniformly blended

  • Make small balls of the mixture and flatten it between your palms to give it an oval shape – your mix should be adequate for 12 vadas/cutlets

  • Heat the oil in a pan and deep fry the vadas till golden brown and enjoy the vadas with curd or green chatani.
