When the name vada comes to our mind – we have a vision of deep fried crunchy version of vadas. But this fasting season we bring you a healthy way of making Sabudana vadas. Soaked tapioca combined with mashed potatoes and seasoned with mild spices. Pan toasted sabudana vada and sabudana vadas in APPE PAN. No doubt the fried way is the crunchier and munchier way of enjoying vadas but pan toasted vadas are equally good and above all they are healthy and tasty. Sabudana vada in Appe pan is always a winner for me. With minium oil added, appe pan recipes gives great results.
First of all let’s begin with soaking sabudana grains in water. Followstep by step recipe of sabudana pearls here. After we have drained sabudana combine all the ingredients and shape them like small patties. I have used Kuttu flour but you can always substitute it with Singoda flour (water chestnut flour) or wheat flour- if not fasting. The results will be the same.
If you prefer to fry these vadas – then heat oil in a kadhai and deep fry these vadas till they are golden brown and crunchy. For pan cooked version just cook them till they are crispy and golden brown on both the sides. In appe pan – the procedure is simple – just drop a pea size oil in moulds, place vadas, cover and cook till evenly cooked and brown from both the sides. This fasting season enjoy these tasty and crispy non fried Sabudana vadas.
