Sabudana Wada


1/2 C Sabudana,
1 C boiled and mashed potatoes
1/2 t Zeera/ Cumin
1/3 C peanuts, roasted and slightly crushed(I use rolling pin to crush mine)
1/2 t lemon juice
1/2 t chilli pdr (adjust this to your taste)
6-8 curry leaves , finely chopped
3 T coriander leaves/cilantro, chopped
salt , to taste

Oil , for frying.

Method :

Clean, wash and soak the sago in approx. 1/3 cup of water for about 4 to 5 hours or till all the water is absorbed and the sago swells.

Drain the sago n make sure there is no excess water.

Now add the sago , potatoes, zeera, chilli pdr, salt, peanuts, curry leaves, cilantro and lemon juice and mix untill combined  or knead lightly. If you are using hands to mix be very carefull , dont mash the sago

Take approx 2 - 3 tablespoon sago mixture n shape it like a patty.

Shallow fry in hot oil till golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towel.

Serve hot with cilantro/mint chutney,  ketchup or sweet yogurt chutney which is made  by beating yogurt with a litte bit of sugar.

You can also add finely chopped green chillies instead of chilli pdr. 

Make Ahead Tip :

The Sago mixture can be made ahead of time and refrigerated for about 2-3 days. Just bring it to room temperature before you fry

I am sending this to Anyone Can Cook event by Ayesha.

One of my favorite snacks. Sadly, hubby is not a sabudana fan, so I don't make it often.
