Sabudana vada

This recipe is adapted from Asha's version at Foodies hope specially for the T&T event guest hosted this month by Ashwini. No changes have been made to the original recipe


1 cup sabudana (also called sago)
1 small boiled and mashed potato
3/4 cup maida/all purpose flour
1/2 cup rice flour
Salt to taste
1 small onion chopped
1/2 cup curds
2 tsp cumin seeds
2 tsp white sesame seeds
1/2 tsp ginger paste
1/2 tsp green chilli paste
Few curry leaves
A bit of baking soda
Oil to fry

Soak sago in a mixture of curd and water for 2-3 hours till soft. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Make medium sized balls, flatten them and fry in hot oil till crisp and well cooked. The oil shouldnt be extremely hot as it will make the outer layer dark but inner portion of the vada will stay uncooked.

Serve hot with chutney/sauce.

This is also my first entry to WYF:Fried snack event hosted at this blog all this month
