Sweet potato sabudana vada recipe | Sabudana recipe for vrat

Navratri is going to start very soon, so I have planned to share many recipes for vrat or fasting. This is 9 nights and 10 days festival. During this period many devotees of matarani observe the fast. This year I am not able to keep the vrat as I am away from the home. I am visiting Canada this time. But I have pre-planned and have made many recipes and took the photos for the blog.

During this vrat or fast, sabudana is the most common and popular ingredient. We can make many sabudana recipes.

In this sweet potato sabudana vada, very minimal spices are added. amchur and lemon juice both sour ingredients are used in this recipe. These two balance out the sweet taste of the sweet potatoes.

Procedure of making sweet potato sabudana vada and texture of it is same as the sabudana vada. Both are crispy from the outside and soft from the inside. But the ingredients used are different, so it makes the big difference in the taste.

Addition of crushed peanuts and sesame seeds provide nutty flavor. As a spicy ingredient, only chopped green chilies are added.

Even though we have used very less spices, still these vadas taste fantastic. I do make Maharashtrian style traditional sabudana vada recipe too sometime.

11) When you are about to finish shaping, heat the oil in a pan on medium-high heat for deep frying. Oil should be hot enough (more hot than usual all frying). How to check oil is hot enough or not? Drop small portion of vada mixture into oil and if it comes on top of oil immediately then oil is ready for frying. Slide vadas gently into hot oil. Do not disturb them for a minute otherwise they will break in the oil.

12) after 2-3 minutes, you can flip them. Fry few vadas at a time, do not overcrowd them. Otherwise oil temperature will go down and vada will absorb too much oil.
