Sabudana Vada

Sabudana Vada or Sago Vada, is a popular Maharashtrian Dish, a popular Snack made during weekends and the rains with a hot cup of Tea (wow :) what a great combination) and it is also a dish prepared during fasting (vrat / upwaas), during religious occasions and festivals. 
It is served with green chutney(as snack) and with curd(during fasting).  
Sago 1 cup
Potato boiled and mashed 3 medium
Crushed peanuts 1/2 cup
Green chilli finely chopped 1 
Red Chili Powder 1/2 tsp optional
Lemon juice 1 tbsp
Salt as per taste
Coriander leaves finely chopped 2 tbsp
Oil for frying
Sugar 1 tbsp optional
Rajgira Atta 1/2 cup optional

Wash sago and soak in equal amount of water as per sago for 3 hours. The sago will become soft and big.

In a bowl add sago, mashed potato, chopped green chili, crushed peanuts, chopped coriander leaves, red chili powder, salt, lemon juice and Sugar (optional). 
Mix it properly and make small balls out of it , and then shape it flattening between palms. 
Optional point:
Take some rajgira atta in a plate and coat the flattened vadas in it evenly. {Sago and Potato have good binding in itself, but I have used rajgira atta for coating the vada, as it will give good crispy bite}.       

Heat Sufficient oil in a Kadai, and deep fry the flattened vadas on medium flame, till its golden brown.

Serve With Curd during Fasts / Serve With Green Chutney or Tomato Ketchup as Snacks.
Sugar is just optional, I added it just for a mild sweetness.

I have added red chili powder 1/2 a tsp, its just optional.

I like crispy finishing, so I have added Rajgira Atta, as I made it for fasting.
