I studied engineering in Belgaum. There I got my first introduction to many Marathi dishes. Among all, my favorites were sabudana khichdi and vada. I would just gobble down these whenever I got a chance. I stopped making these in last few years as V is not a big fan. Last week I was craving for these vadas, I did not want to deep fry them, but wanted them to be crispy. So I rolled them in bread crumbs. They came out wonderful.
Click here Pallaviâ€™s recipe for Marathi sabudana vada. I used the same ingredients and slightly different method.
1 cup soaked sabudana (tips for soaking)
1 cup boiled and mashed potato
1/2 tea spn cumin seeds
2 tbl spn chopped coriander leaves
1/2 cup peanut powder
3 finely chopped (or crushed) green chillies
1 cup breadcrumbs
Mix all the ingredients except oil and breadcrumbs in a bowl. Make small balls from the mixture. Roll into breadcrumbs and shallow fry them. I fried them on my cast iron pan.
Serves : 3-4
Preparation time : 30mins
