Sabudana Wada

Sabudana Wada:

Sabudana Wada is my all-time favourite Maharashtrian dish! Sabudana" is the Marathi word for white pearl like beads of sago. Sabudana is called "javvu arisi" in Tamil .In Mumbai and in Maharashtra, there are a lot of places where you get hot, delicious Sabudana Wada. It is very easy to prepare. In Maharashtra Sabudana Wada and Sabudana kichidi are most common dishes made during fasting time. But I have never made it during a fast.... It is very easy to make with very little preparation. Sabudana Wada is such an awesome snack and too delicious !

P.S I feel very sad to say that Due to some problem in the camera I cannot click the snap properly.And Iam not good in photography.but I am trying my level best. Feel sorry for my bad snap:(

After writing about My bad snap My friend Anu Sriram modified this pic and send to me.It is amazing.Thanks a lot Anu.so nice of you dear:)

Hi Madam,
Thanks for the good recipe given with pictures of yummy Wada's. I live in Hyderabad and prefer making Sabudana wada using ready-to-cook Actchawa Sabudana Wada, which I generally buy from spencer’s Store. I will definitely give your product a try but not during fasting because Coriander powder does not go during fast. Sometime you may also try Actchawa Sabudana wada ready-mix, the information of product is available on http://www.actchawa.com.
