Sabudana Patties Fried
I was recently introduced to Sabudana Wada, by my friend, Chhaya. I was intrigued that Tapioca could be transformed into a savory patty, as I only knew of Tapioca as a dessert. I had to try it. I followed Chhaya's recipe and my husband's response, when I served him these wadas/vaddes, was, “absolutely delicious”!!
Chhaya also makes tapioca with potatoes. This dish, also very delicious, is called Sabudana Kitchri. Both these savory Tapioca dishes make excellent starters. Since my husband enjoys the vaddes so much, I make it at least once a week. I now also add a pinch of turmeric, since this spice has so many medicinal benefits.
With her expertise at cooking, Chhaya does not usually measure the ingredients that she uses. She kindly took the time to note the amounts that she uses & shared this with me. I was able to follow the steps and present it as a recipe for everyone to enjoy.
Do try this easy, yet delicious starter. Here are the details.
