I’m always on the lookout for great breakfast and snack time recipes. Anytime you have had a light lunch or feel like munching something with your tea, you can have these kinds of snacks. The snacks can be served at tea parties, kitty parties or just when neighbors come visiting. Sabudana is one such ingredient derived from palm tree fruits which can be used to make delicious snacks. It is used throughout India to make puddings and other recipes. Here I’ve given a sabudana vada recipe. Sabudana, according to Hindu culture, is even allowed to be eaten during fasts (vrat). Just replace the normal salt with the special salt used during fasting and you have a delicious fast recipe. So go ahead and try this nutritional and energy filled sabudana vada.
