    a great treat Sabudana vada has been on my ‘to do list’ for a very long time. These days I am trying to avoid fried foods if possible so that when we dine out, I can indulge in whatever I want. However this Ekadashi, I just decided to make a fried snack. I am so glad I made these so crunchy and delicious vadas.

Cassava or tapioca is rich in carbohydrates, Vitamin K and minerals like zinc, magnesium, copper, iron and manganese. You have to be careful when buying cassava. If it has bluish blackish specks in the white part, do not use that cassava. Normally cassava is fried or boiled and eaten. In this ekadashi recipe, I have used it to make nice crispy bhajias or fritters.Cassava in Kenya is called mogo.   Updated: We all prefer to have fried snacks as they taste so much better.
