How to make Sabudana vada | Pearl Sago Patties | Sabudana Tikki

Sabudana Vada is a crunchy and yummy snack for breakfast. It is also called  food for fasting (vrat ka khanna). In India, people make it on "Navaratra" during fasting days. Sabudana vada is easy to make.

These vadas are served with yogurt accompanied with Tamarind and Mint chutney. Sabudana vadas can be deep fried, shallow fried or can be made on a tawa with few drops of oil. I have made these vadas in less oil and used olive oil for the same.
