Sabudana Vada is one of the most traditional and all-time favourite fasting foods. Made with boiled potatoes, crushed peanuts and soaked sabudana, these vadas have a unique texture and pleasing flavour. Here, we have given the traditional snack an innovative twist, by stuffing it with tasty coconut chutney. It is important to make the chutney nice and thick, so it can be easily stuffed into the sabudana vada mixture. With the perky taste of coriander and green chillies, the Sabudana Vada Stuffed with Coconut Chutney is a very unique treat, which has an amazing flavour and texture too. Serve it with Peanut Curd Chutney, another interesting faraali recipe.
