Sagubeyam bajji / sabudhana pakoda


Sabudhana is pretty popular with foodies and so are pakodas. How about combining these two favorites into a new delicacy – Sabhudana pakoda !!! Yey !! I had forgotten about this recipe until my Mom made it during my recent visit to India. Yumm ! Soaking is the slowest part, rest of the recipe is quick. To get best flavor, the buttermilk must be little sour. Sabudhana must get properly soaked else it’ll crack and burst when frying. The mixture should be little thick.

Sounds like a perfect Diwali snack ? Go ahead, try it out and share your experience.
