#CookandChomp – Sabudana Vadas

Sabudana Vadas are just as gluttonous as sabudana khichdi is healthy. These potato and sabudana cutlets are my absolute favourites for breakfasts – unlike regular tikkis or cutlets, the sabutdana adds a little more crunchy and sticky texture – crunchy on the outside and yummy on the inside. And yes, it is vegetarian. The recipe is super simple.
Serves 4

  • Sabudana – 1 cup
  • Potatoes, boiled and peeled – 4 medium
  • Red chilly powder – 1 tsp
  • Coriander powder – 1tsp
  • Green chillies, chopped – 1/2 tsp
  • Oil – to shallow fry
  • Salt – to taste
