Sabudana vadas often known as Sago Vadas or Tapioca Fries are ideal family snacks which can also be consumed during Navaratri or Janmastami fasts. However in that case avoid the onion and replace common salt with Sendha Namak (rock salt). These vadas are soft from inside and crispy outside, just too good to resist. Try it out for yourself!
