‘Fasting‘ for me is synonymous with Sabudana Wada along with some Phalhari Vrat ki Chutney 😁 one could even say that I wait to ‘fast’ just so that I can gorge on them!! So crisp on the outside and perfectly moist on the inside.. 

Sabudana Ka Wada

Sabudana Wada or Sago Fritters are a famous form of deep fried snacks from Maharashtra, usually served with some spicy green chutney 😀 and in other parts of the country, it’s eaten during fasts or as we call them ‘vrat /upwas’ in the holy month of Shravan or during Navratri and Janmashtami too ☺️

Sabudana Ka Wada

My mom makes the best Sabudana Ka Wada & Phalhari Vrat Ki Chutney and I simply follow her tried and tested recipes. Phalhari chutney is very common in most homes during fasts, basically we must avoid onion & garlic in the chutney. Some may add peanuts or curd to give a body to the chutney…but the basics are pretty much the same all over! As I am fasting for the ‘Shraavan Somvaar‘ I will get to enjoy these often during this holy month ☺️..you can make these in an Appe pan / aebelskiver pan too. See recipe here.

Let’s start with the recipe, it requires a bit of prior prepping..😀

Wash the Sabudana / sago under running water till the water runs clear. Soak it overnight in a little water, just enough to cover the Sabudana / sago (even soaking for a minimum of 4-5 hours works well for me). Don’t keep any excess water while soaking.

Next, once the Sabudana / sago is soaked, mix all the ingredients together except the oil in the mixing bowl using a fork and make sure there are no lumps in a potatoes. Heat the frying pan along with enough oil to deep these Wadas. Make medium sized Wadas and drop them one by one into the hot oil. Cook for about 2-3 mins on the first side on low – medium flame else they will remain uncooked from within. Now turn them over and cook for a further 2 mins. They will get a rich golden – brown colour on all sides and will crisp up as well. Do the same for the entire batch. Serve them hot with Phalhari Vrat ki Chutney. 

To make the chutney, add all the above ingredients in a blender and churn until it’s smooth. Taste and correct the seasoning. This chutney keeps well in a glass/ porcelain bowl in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. 😊
