Monsoons are often about coming home drenched in rain and praying to God not to make you sick! Once you are settled, all you crave is a nice and hot cup of tea with something on the side. You cannot just eat cookies and cakes all the time. The cold in the air makes you crave for something spice and hot to go with that tea.
If you come to the think of it, there are so many options. You can make pakodas, vadas and fried rolls out of so many things. I decided to for sabudana vadas. Sabudana vadas are the fritters made using sago / tapioca, potato, peanuts and spices. Fried crispy, these smell heavenly and taste amazing! They are the perfect accompaniment with the evening tea while you are sitting pretty inside your blanket.
Let us see how to make sabudana vadas. But before we proceed, please read the important notes.
- Make sure the sago is soaked properly. It should be soft and fluffy. This is necessary if you do not want the grains of sago to burst during the frying process. Bursting of sago grains cause the oil to splutter. Please be careful while frying the sabudana vadas.
- Flattening the fritters like a patty will ensure it is cooked properly on the inside.
- For the purpose of measurement, 1 cup = 250 ml. This recipe makes about 15 vadas, depending upon the size.
