sabudana pakora

these sabudana pakoras are simple and easy to make and they also make for a nice breakfast or evening snack. i make these sometimes for an evening snack and we have them with tomato sauce or coriander chutney. few more fasting snacks recipes on the blog are:

these sabudana pakoras are similar to the maharashtrian sabudana vada. just that i have added some kuttu ka atta (buckwheat flour) in the pakora mixture and excluded some ingredients like lemon juice and coriander leaves.

apart from buckwheat flour, the other main ingredients in this recipe are sabudana or tapioca pearls, roasted peanuts, potatoes. the peanuts gives crunchy taste in between and add flavor. mashed potatoes and kuttu ka atta helps in binding the pakoras. apart from that kuttu ka atta also absorbs extra moisture, if any.

since i get pretty hard sabudana pearls here, i always soak them overnight. by morning they soften really well. so depending on the quality of the pearls, you can soak them overnight or for a few hours.

  1. Hello, thanks for sharing this interesting recipe. I’d like to try it out but need to know ,if you don’t have buckwheat flour will substituting with besan(chickpea flour) work as well? Would you have to boil the potato first or can you use raw grated potato directly? Thanks for any advice
