Sago Vada / Sabudana Vada

Sabudana Vada / Sago Vada is a popular dish majorly prepared during fasts. It is very tasty and can be eaten as a snack. This can be prepared as a side dish also. Here I am sharing the recipe with pictures..

Ingredients :

Sabudana- 2 cups
Boiled potatoes - 3-4
Peanuts crushed - 1/2 cup
Green Chillies - 3-4 chopped
Coriander leaves - 1/2 cup chopped
Salt to taste
Red Chilly powder- 1 tbs
Garam Masala Powder - 1/2 tbs


Soak sabudana for 2 hrs. After that drain water and in a bowl take mashed boiled potatoes, sabudana, crushed peanuts,chopped chillies, coriander, ginger, salt, red chilly powder, garam masala powder and mix well.

Heat oil in a wok and take small amount of mixture in your palm.


Form ball and press a hole in centre and drop in hot oil slowly.

Fry till golden brown. Keep on a tissue to absorb extra oil.

Serve with Green chutney or masala dahi.

Hope you liked it..


  1. Hi Deepali
    Thanks for sharing the recipe. I would like to add on a substitute to lessen the calorie value of the dish. You can bake these wadas in oven too. Preheat the oven to 375. Brush the wadas with oil and put them in oven.It takes 15-20 mins to bake on one side till it becomes brown and then turn it and repeat the process. It takes a little more time from the usual process but definitely calories vs time ratio compensates for everything else :)
