Of being busy, Sabudana Vrat Namkeen & Weekly Menu

One of my favorite vrat namkeens - The Sabudana vrat namkeen which are deep fried sago pearls with dry fruits and perfect to snack on, during fasting.
Course Snack
Cuisine Indian
Servings 6 serving


  • 1 cup sabudana Big
  • 1/4 cup coconut Dried slice
  • 1/4 cup peanuts
  • 1 potato Small
  • to taste salt (use sendha namak if fasting)
  • 1 tsp castor sugar
  • to taste salt
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper


  • Wash and soak the sabudana in just enough water to cover it for 4-5 hours.
  • Peel the potato and slice it in thin one inch long sticks. Soak in water to prevent the growing of potatoes.
  • Slice the dried coconut (khopra) in one inch long thin strips.
  • Heat oil in a big kadai for deep frying the sabudana. While the oil is heating, drain all the water from sabudana and potatoes. Fry handful of sabudana at one time till it fulls up like a ball and starts to float on top of the oil. Drain on a kitchen towel. Repeat for all sabudana.
  • In the same oil, fry potato sticks till crisp and slightly browned. Fry the coconut and peanuts till slightly brown as well.
  • Let everything cool slightly and mix together along with salt, castor sugar and white pepper. Store in an airtight container and serve along with chai.
