Fasting or Upwaas is not for me..I realised it long back ,before marriage when we fasted every chaturthis..which meant atleast one fasting day per month , and religious festival days extra… But what actually happened was heavy meals laden with ghee,overload of potatoes and  sweets and a bloated stomach at the end of the day! So the very motive of fasting was lost! Eventually, we got bored eating the cold  sabudana khichidis for tiffin and fruits which failed to curb appetite for more than an hour. So , eventually sabu dana stuff and other faarali treats were now restricted to occassional snacks, which served as a good refresher! This Navratri revived me old memories of all the upwaas ka khana…So even though me n my in laws family do not fast on Navratris , but go vegeterian for the festival , I decided to indulge everyone in this delicious Sabu dana Wada with Peanut and Yogurt chutney , and made sweet potato fries along with it ….Sounds like a Desi Mc Donalds meal..isnt it?



  1. Mix together all the ingredients for the Sabudana Wada in a bowl , using little water if needed for binding and keep aside. Grease a plastic sheet with oil and pinch small balls of the mixture and shape them into round flat wadas.
  2. In a mixie or a blender, mix together all the ingredients for the chutney and blend till smooth. Transfer in a serving bowl . You can temper this chutney with ghee and jeera.( I was in a too much hurry so forgot to add that)
  3. Deep fry the julliened sweet potatoes in hot oil till crisp and brown. Season with salt. Serve the Sabu dana Wadas with the yogurt and peanut chutney with the Sweet potato fries as accompaniments.

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
