Main Ingredients






Green Chili Pepper

Step 1

If there is any water, which most likely there should not be, drain in a colander.Rinse sabudana well until water turns clear. Soak it in ½ cup water overnight. In the morning, the sabudana would have absorbed all water. Press one sabudana ball between your fingers, and it should crush easily.

Step 2

Grate boiled potatoes in a large bowl. Transfer the saubdana to the bowl. Add crushed roasted peanuts, cilantro, green chilies and salt. You may also add ginger or lime juice if you like.

Step 3

Divide the mixture into 13-15 equal parts, make round balls and then flatten them a bit.

Stovetop Frying Method:

Heat oil on medium-high heat in a kadai or wok. Make sure the oil is hot by dropping a single sabudana ball. It should quickly float to the top.

Now add 3-5 vadas to the oil depending on the size of the kadhai, don't overcrowd the kadai. Fry vadas until golden brown and crisp from both sides. Transfer to a plate covered with paper towel to drain any excess oil.

Stovetop Frying Method:

Spray some oil in the air fryer basket. Place vada's in a single layer leaving space between each. Brush or spray some oil on top of the Vada's.

Air Fryer  Method:

Air fry for about 16-18 minutes at 390°F. Flip the vada's at about the 10 minute mark.

Air Fryer  Method:

 And it's ready!
