ಸಬ್ಬಕ್ಕಿ ವಡೆ/Dill Sabudana Vada

It was quite long since we had some fried snacks. Last weekend it was breezy and raining heavily , the weather was so tempting to have some hot crispy snacks. Sabudana vada it has been many years since i prepared this crispy snack so thought the day is fine for it and started off.

Ingredients:

  • Sabudana/Sago pearls  soaked – 1 cup for 2-3 hrs,

  • Potatoes boiled  mashed – 2,

  • Peanuts -1/2 cup coarsely powdered,

  • Dill leaves – 1/2 cup cut finely

  • salt to taste

  • Chilies and ginger cut finely,

  • Chili powder(optional)

  • lemon juice (1-2 tsp)

  • cumin seeds – 1 tsp

  • oil for  deep frying

 Take a colander and strain all water from sabudana, mix all ingredients without any water except oil.

Shape into medium sized patties, for some patties i did add some onions to see the how it turns but onions charred by the time sabudana fries as onions take less time to get fried .

Deep fry the patties until golden brown color. We like it crisp version rather than the soft version so fried for longer time

    Roopa,

    I am drooling, look so yummy. I am always apprensive of frying saboo dhana as mine always soak lot of oil. love your twist of adding dil

    –Sreelu make sure there is no water when you drain it. After draining i leave it for sometime so there is not water. You need to fry for longer time too! the main reason for oily ones is when you fry the sabudana it should not spurt this happens if sabudana is not soaked well and oil tends to seep inside the vada this is from my experience.

  10. Reena says:

    Adding Dill to the mixture is different. Does the flavor stand out? Vadas are so crispy. Mine doesn’t taste so crispy. I have made it ages ago though.

    –Reena dill not as strong as for masala vadas. Mine were more like muruku on the outside and all loved it.

  11. sunita says:

    Roopa, thanks for visiting my blog and helping me to discover yours. It is a pleasure to add you to my blog roll and feeds.

    I’ve just learnt another name for sago – sabudana! We primarly use it to make porridge but it is great to know that it can also be used for savoury dishes such as the one you have made here.

    You’re certainly lucky to have a husband who can cook that well. 🙂

    –Thanks for visiting my blog Chynthia! Yeah porridge tastes very good too we do make desserts, fasting foods also! i am happy to see you here and would be adding yours to the blogroll too!

  19. Sig says:

    –Thanks Sig, Sabudana are english term sago, thks for pointing out i will add tag as Sago too.
