Notes

  • Avoid over boiling the potatoes. If over boiled they will hold up the moisture and make the sabudana vadas soggy.
  • Drain the soaked sabudana completely otherwise the excess moisture will make the vadas soggy.
  • Fry the vadas only on a medium heat otherwise they will brown from outside and remain soggy inside.
