Sabudana vada, traditionally an ingredient used during fasts, sabudana is a favourite amongst Maharashtrian It lends itself to such lovely recipes, such as these vadas! The crunchy peanuts that punctuate every bite are something I look forward to in the vada! You can serve these vadas on fasting days like Janmashtami , Maha Shivratri or as Starters / Snacks for entertaining.
