  • 1 cup Sabudana raw
  • 4 regular size or 2 large Potatoes boiled & grtaed
  • 1/2 cup Peanuts Dry roasted & unsalted
  • 1 small piece Ginger chopped fine
  • 1 small Green chili chopped fine
  • 2 tbsp Cilantro/Coriander leaves
  • 1/2 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • To Taste Salt & Red Chili powder use sendha namak & black pepper powder if fasting


Preparing the Sabudana

  • Wash 1 cup sabudana in running water till water runs clear. Now soak sabudana in 1&1/2 cups of water for 2-3 hrs. The sabudana needs to be soaked till you can easily mash the sabudana pearl between finger and thumb effortlessly. Basically, it should become soft till the center. This is a very important step for perfect wadas. Every brand has a different variety, so check your sabudana for doneness accordingly. I like Laxmi brand. It gets done in an hour and every pearl is perfect.

Preparing the Peanuts

  • Dry roast or air fry (for 8 minutes) the peanuts. Let these cool for 2-3 minutes. Then grind these coarsely in food processor. Or you may crush these in a plastic ziplock with the help of a rolling pin. It is ready.

Shaping the Wada for Air frying

  • Take a big bowl. Add boiled and grated potatoes + grated ginger + finely chopped green chili + lemon juice + soaked & drained sabudana + roasted peanut powder + finely chopped coriander leaves + salt & pepper. Give it a good mix and mash it well to bring it together in a dough. Make wadas in donut shape or flat discs, or roundels or sticks. Finish the whole dough likewise.
  • Spray the wadas with little oil or brush them with little oil.

Air Frying the Sabudana Wadas

  • Preheat the Philips Air Frye at 390*F / 200*C for 5 minutes. Take the basket of the air fryer out and spray it with little oil.
  • Place the patties or balls or donuts in the basket. Don't overcrowd the basket. Make these in batches, in about 2-3 batches.
  • Air fry these for 18-20 minutes at 350*F/180*C for crispy wadas. At 8-10 minutes, take the basket out and flip them or move them around and put the basket back in.
  • After 15 minutes, check the wadas, if you want more color, air fry for 2-3 minutes more. Your AIR FRYER SABUDANA WADA are ready.
  • Make a large batch and store. You can reheat these as required in AIR FRYER for 3 minutes and serve hot.
