Sabudana Pakora Recipe

Sabudana Pakoda Recipe – Fasting Snacks Recipe

I am here with an Indian fasting dish Sabudana Pakora, which is usually made by women during fast or as a snack.  Sabudana or sago or tapioca pearls Pakoras known by different name also that is Sabudana Vada, a Maharashtrian Recipe.

This fasting recipe is full of energy and carbohydrates. Sabudana or SAGO are full starch and gluten-free so can serve as a substitute for Wheat. The tapioca contains very low amount of saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium, which makes them healthier. It also contains iron, calcium, copper, and members of vitamin B-complex.

Sabudana Pakoras are very delicious Navratri food recipes when eaten with green chilli chutney. In some of the regions in India, they are served as a snack. Check out the full recipe down and add in a menu today.
