Best Air Fryer Sabudana Vada For Aashadhi Ekadashi Fast

How to Make Non-Fried Sabudana Vada/ Sabudana Vada in the Air Fryer
Hello Foodies,
           I've found the most comfortable, most approachable way to prepare Sabudana Vada is to cook them in the Air Fryer. To make the extra crispy Sabudana Vada, you can air fry some more time, and that will taste like they've been fried! So Addictive! You can make batches without having to stand at constant attendance. Plus, these vadas are healthier fast food. These vadas are an excellent option for busy weekdays breakfast, or when you just need a snack. 

           I love these delicious sabudana vadas because they are healthy, nutritious, vegan, gluten-free, and versatile.

What is Sabudana Vada?
          So the Sabudana Vada(Sago/Tapioca Fritters) is a famous fast food/snack originating from the western part of India. They are mainly prepared with tapioca pearls, potato, peanuts power, green and red chilies, and are usually served with peanuts chutney/green chutney and enjoyed with hot tea and are really a treat on a fasting day. Making sabudana vada needs to soak for a few hours before it is ready to use, and you are good.

How & with What to Serve Sabudana Vada:
  • Sabudana vada is served with Peanuts Chutney / Green Chutney / Yogurt accompanied with hot tea/beverage.

My Take:
  • The sabudana should be soaked well and should be very soft.
  • If you do not have an air fryer, then you can shallow fry the vadas in a pan with little oil or use appe pan as I did here.
  • You can use Rajgira Flour/Paneer/tapioca flour/arrowroot powder as a binder/binding agent.

How to freeze uncooked sabudana vada:
  • Sabudana vadas can be made in advance and frozen. 
  • Rolled patties/uncooked vadas can be frozen for 3-4 weeks.
  • Use a parchment paper in between two vadas else it will be difficult to separate the vadas after freezing.
  • Thaw them before cooking/air frying.
