Sabudana Vada

Wishing all our dear readers  a very happy and prosperous NAVRATRI.  While everyone is busy celebrating the festivities of these auspicious nine days, we decided to make the Vrat(fast) special snack - Sabudana Vada. It is traditionally a Maharastrian snack  which has now gained popularity all over India. These crunchy vadas  are not only mouthwatering, they are very filling and can subsitute for a meal by itself.

Prep Time: 1/2 hour (excluding soaking time)
Ingredients
Sabudana/Tapioca pearls: 1/2 cup
Potato: 2 medium sized
Roasted peanuts (coarsely powdered): 3 tablespoons
Jeera/Cumin seeds: 1 teaspoon
Green Chillies: 2-3
Ginger(chopped): 1 teaspoon
Coriander/Cilantro leaves (finely chopped) : 4-5 stems
Lemon juice: 1/2 teaspoon (optional)
Turmeric powder : a pinch
Salt to taste
Oil to fry

Soak the Sabudana overnight or for a min of 4-5 hours with lil water. For 1/2 cup sabudana, you could use 1/4 cup water.
Boil the potatoes, peel off the skin and mash them. Coarsely powder the peanuts and add it to the soaked sabudana.Add the mashed potatoes and rest of the ingredients (ginger, green chillies, cilantro, cumin seeds, turmeric and salt). Mix well. Make small balls from this mixture and flatten them.
Fry them in hot oil. Turn them over and fry them until golden brown on both sides.Take them out and serve with Green chutney.

Enjoy!!
