Sabudana Waffles

Sabudana Vada reminds me of Mumbai. Every few months we would go on a family trip to a destination close to Mumbai. On our way we would stop by at Shree Dutt snacks that is a roadside Maharashtrian shack. They would be serving all the Maharashtrian delicacies and one of them would be fresh Sabudana Vada. They would be so crispy form outside and soft from inside would melt in your mouth. I am sharing a recipe of traditional Sabudana Vada but we will use a waffle maker to them. You are going to love this quick and easy recipe. Don’t forget to save it.
