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 !
