Sabudana or Sago is commonly used in Karnataka and Maharashtra  states of India to prepare various kind of dishes. From payasam (sweet porridge) to wada (fritters), there are different kinds which are tasty and ideal for fasting and regular days. Today, I am presenting to you a healthier version , Sabudana wada in appe pan.

The wadas fried in oil are definitely tastier, but they are very addictive and high in calories. I prefer shallow frying  and hence made them in the appe pan.

Appe pan is available in the market in all major cities. Nirali, Nirlep, Pigeon and Hawkins are some of the popular brands.

Notes
  • Cooking on slow flame, makes them more crispier.
  • To deep fry, follow the same recipe, but flatten them like tikkis and deep fry. At this stage, you can even deep freeze some to use later. First, flatten them and put them on a wide plate and deep freeze, Later, keep them covered in a container and use them when needed.

    My daughter is a big fan of sabudana vada, but I make it occasionally as it absorbs lot of oil on frying . Making it in an appam pan is a great idea, thus making it a healthy and guilt free snack. Will try next time
