How to Make Sabudana Vada Recipe:
- Wash sago, drain excess water and keep aside.
- Let it soak for about 2 hours with a little water on it, if necessary you may sprinkle water.
Tip: Sago must be soaked completely without any strains of hardness. Once soaked well you will find this as a kind of jelly, moist and soft.
- Mix all the ingredients with sago and make the soft dough.
Tip: We need to drain excess water from sabudana else dough might become loose.
- Make small balls of equal sizes and flatten slightly
- Heat oil in a pan and deep fry until you get golden brown.
Tip: Sago is very sensitive to oil, make sure that the oil is not too hot or cold. for suppose, if oil is hot then before the inner portion of the ball is cooked, outer portion gets crispy. If we try to cook further they may get burned and change color.
