Sabudana Appe / Appam

Sabudana vada is a well known fried snack and most favored recipe by people who go on fasting (vrat/ upvas) on auspicious days like Ekadashi, Maha Shivratri, Sankashti Chaturthi or during Navratri. Let’s try to make these vade healthier by avoiding frying. Appe tastes the same as sabudana vade. You can call these as non-fried sabudana vade.

It gets cooked very quickly and requires very less amount of oil. Hence it is a good option for those who are looking for guilt-free and vegan options for fast.

You can make this recipe for breakfast or evening snack.

If you are making it on non-fasting days as an evening snack or to pack in the lunch or snack box to office, you can use chopped onion and garlic, as it will enhance the taste and flavor.

Give it try and enjoy the sabudana appe.
