Oh yes, its ekadashi tommorrow, what better way to post a recipe of these delicious vadas. So if you want to munch on some yummies lets do this, yaaaaaay. Simple ingredients make this a super delicious and abit unhealthy as it is deep fried, but cheat days are aloowed, arent they??? SO here we go!

Ingredients (Serves 3)

  • 4 Potatoes boiled, peeled and mashed
  • 1 cup sabudana (washed and soaked in water until they soften), make sure to drain out water completely from them, to avoid bursting of the vadas.
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp Black pepper powder
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • Crushed Green chilly to taste
  • Chopped fresh coriander
  • 1/2 tsp roasted cumin seed powder


  • In a bowl, mix the mashed poatoes, drain the sabudana and mix it with it
  • Add all the spices, Lemon, Salt, Pepper and green chilly paste
  • You can taste and adjust the spices accordingly, some people add sugar but personally i dont
  • Now mix it all and roll out small balls, refrigerate the balls for minimum 20 mins to 30 mins (refrigeration is the secret guys)
  • Heat sunflower oil. we cannot have corn oil on ekadashi any way, then add the balls for deep frying and move them with a chapati rolling spatula, this is to ensure they dont stick at the bottom
  • Tada they are ready
