What a girl to do!!! If you have ever tasted sabudana wade that are made the good old way, your diet days will be thrown in the GB and any resolutions that you have ever made will be forgotten, most promises to stay away from fried food will be 100% broken. I am not exaggerating, this is all truth and nothing but the truth.
So I found a mid way in all this sabudana wada drama. This is one way I get to eat them and yet not feel bad about myself. I replaced the proportions of boiled potato and peanut powder with water-chestnut flour, which is easily available in any Indian grocery store also known as Singada Atta. And Shallow fried it in my brand new Danish Pan which Mr. Ash ordered on Amazon for me for just $11. He is very cute that way, All I need to do is browse through few pictures of what I want and keep saying.oh I must get it I must get it, and the next time he orders stuff from Amazon, I get lucky. Guess you get the whole point of what I am saying, so now will give you the details without further boring you.
You will need;
1 Cup Soaked Sago--Soak the sago in water for 10 mins and drain all water out and keep covered for good 5-6 hours.
Approx 1 cup Water-chestnut flour-Singada Atta
The proportion will depend on how soggy the sago is, if its less you will require less flour
1 small boiled potato-Optional
2 tbspn roasted peanut powder
1 tbspn Cayenne powder
1 tspn cumin powder
1 tspn Cumin seeds
1 tbspn Chopped Cilantro
1 tsp sugar
Salt to taste.
Water if needed to knead into a pliable dough
In a bowl combine all the ingredients and mix well. Use little water if needed to bind it into a ball. heat the appe/danish pan and spray it with a non stick spray or use oil whichever you prefer. Cover with a lid and cook it for about 2-3 minutes. Flip the nuggets and repeat the process of covering and cooking. Enjoy as is or with any sauce/ketchup or traditional coconut chutney.
