Sabudana Vada Recipe, How To Make Sabudana Vada for Fasting

One of the most popular snacks in Maharashtrian cuisine made from sago/tapioca pearl also known as sabbaki, Javarissi in other Indian states. I made this Sabudana Vada for today’s Breakfast.

Sabudana Vada is also serve in fasting season. We can make various sabudana food for fasting such as as Sabudana Khichadi, Sabudana Puri, Sabudana Thalipith. I have tried these recipes earlier, but never got the chance to take a photos. Now It is in my to-do list to try it again and take the pictures for my blog.

This crispy and delicious Sabudana Vada is served with sweet curd, coconut chutney or even with Tomato Sauce . Today I have tried with simple plain coconut chutney because I have a shortage of curd.

I have added all the ingredients which are normally avoided in fasting recipe. If you are specially trying this Sabudana Vada recipe for Fasting days than avoid coriander leaves, curry leaves and chilli powder.

Soaking Time is more important to make sabudana recipes. We require minimum 3-4 hours to soak the sabudana in water. I have soaked this sabudana in Night so I can make this for morning breakfast so my soaking time is around 7-8 hours so I got really soft and spongy sabudana’s.

Let ‘s try this recipe now!!!

  4. Roast the peanut without oil in pan and grind it. Keep it aside.
  5. Meantime, Boil the potatoes, once cooled down completely remove the skin and mash the potatoes with the help of your hand or folk. If you don’t have potato masher. Keep it aside.
  6. Take one big bowl. Add sabudana, peanuts powder, grated coconut, green chillies and all the ingredients.
  7. Mix well with your hand. Make small equal size ball and flatten the ball to get the shape of Vada.
  8. Heat oil in Kadhai or Pan. Deep fry them in batch of 3- 4. Fry all vada’s until get a nice golden colour and crispness.

Javvarisi Vadai


  1. You can add Rajgira/ amaranth flour for binding purpose but as per my experience potato is more than enough for binding the Vada. This is just full proof recipe to get golden crispy sabudana vada.
  2. The oil we use for frying purpose is neither too hot or nor or warm. If its to hot, it will burn the vada or if its warm it will absorb the all oil.
  3. If you want crispy vada, you need to brown them outside.

The texture of Boondi in a raita does matter a lot. It completely depends on the individual.

  • If you like crispy boondi, add all spices in curd and refrigerate it . Later add boondi while serving.
  • We prefer soft boondi at my home so I follow above method. 15 minutes is more than enough to make bond soft and juicy, so make this Spicy Boondi Raita before the 15 minutes of your meal and serve chilled.

Today morning, I was so frustrating because I need to make some instant breakfast and lunch box for my little angle. I normally planned in the night for next day breakfast and lunch box but somehow I forgot for breakfast menu and my daughter is a little fussy about her food. She like to eat Idli and Dosa so I tried this Instant Idli by using Buttermilk. There was fresh buttermilk in my refrigerator so instead of using baking soda or curd, I used this Buttermilk to make the rava Idli.
