Sabudana Vada in Appe Pan/Healthy Sabudana Vada Recipe
Sabudana vadas are famous Indian fritters made from sago, potatoes, groundnuts and chillies. Generally they are deep fried. But this recipe is a healthier version and is made in Appe/Aebleskiver pan. I used a non stick Aebleskiver pan.
They taste so good that you won’t even realize that they are not fried.
This Appe pan has been a blessing. Most of the deep fried items can be made in this. Just add a few drops of oil and your fritters or any other dish is ready.
As a child I remember eating Sabudana Vadas in famous Prakash Hotel in Shivaji Park, Mumbai. They were always deep fried. I never imagined that I can make a similar tasting vadas and that too without frying.
- 2 cups sago/sabudana
- 3 potatoes boils
- 4 chillies chopped
- 1/2 cup roasted and coarsely grind groundnuts
- handful of coriander leaves
- salt as per taste
- few drops of oil
- Rinse the sabudana and place it in a bowl with a cup of water. Cover and keep aside. After an hour sabudana should have soaked up most of the water. Stir the bowl of sabudana. If it is dry sprinkle some more water and refrigerate it for overnight or minimum 4 hours.
- In a bowl mash the boiled potatoes, add chillies, salt , groundnuts, coriander leaves and sabudana.
- Mix everything well and make small balls out of it
- Heat the app pan. In each of the wells add some drops of oil.
- Place the sabudana vadas in the app pan
- When the underside begins to brown turn the vada on its side. As it cooks continue to turn it until all sides are completely brown.
