Sabudana Vada recipe | Homemade Sago Vada and Peanut Chutney

Sabudana Vada recipe

Sabudana Vada recipe is easy to make fasting food at home. The main ingredient used is sago or sabudana which is very healthy and low-calorie.

During any religious festival, we often spend so much time deciding what to have after fasting. This is because after hours of empty stomach you cannot just eat anything too heavy or high calorie. That might lead to severe acidity and illness.

On the other hand, we have to consider a quick and easy recipe that should be served with less effort. After thinking all of these I suddenly remember my grandmother’s famous vrat recipe of Crispy sabudana vada. It is made of sago, a healthy lentil that is nutritious and light on the stomach after fasting.

During my childhood days, I loved having these crispy vadas. They were so tasty. The only disappointing thing was it was made only on festivals of fasting or vrat like Navratri or Ekadashi. The ingredients used in this vada are common in every kitchen.

So, I thought of sharing this wonderful Sabudana vada Recipe with you all. I am sure you will love this too after fasting on Navratri or any religious festival or even just like that as a snack. This is a perfect fasting food that will not do any harm to your health.

These crispy sabudana vadas taste best with peanut chutney. I have also shared the recipe here.
