Sabudana Vada

Sabudana Vada is a delicious snack with a great texture. It is crunchy on the outside and soft inside.  These wade can be deep fried or shallow fried as per your choice.  Very popular during all kind of fasts.



  • 1 cup sabudana (Tapioco)
  • 1 cup water for soaking
  • 2-3 small potatoes
  • 2 green chillies chopped
  • chopped cilantro
  • ginger grated or chopped
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder (Adjust per your taste)
  • 3/4 tsp amchoor ( dry Mango powder)


Soak the sabudana overnight or 2-3 hours.  Boil the potatoes and let them cool down.  In a mixing bowl, mash the potatoes.  Add chopped ginger, cilantro, green chillies, salt, red chilli powder and amchoor.  Also add the soaked sabudana and mix everything together.


Divide the mixture and make small patties.


If you want to deep fry it, then heat the oil.  I shallow fried it in a frying pan with a little bit of oil.  Turn after a few mins so to cook on the other side.


Cook them until they have they are cripsy on the outside.   Serve hot with mint chutney as a snack.  I didn't have the mint chutney, so I had it with plain yogurt.
