Sabudana wada in Appe pan/ sago snack

Sabudana or Sago is commonly used in Karnataka and Maharashtra  states of India to prepare various kind of dishes. From payasam (sweet porridge) to wada (fritters), there are different kinds which are tasty and ideal for fasting and regular days. Today, I am presenting to you a healthier version , Sabudana wada in appe pan.

The wadas fried in oil are definitely tastier, but they are very addictive and high in calories. I prefer shallow frying  and hence made them in the appe pan.

Appe pan is available in the market in all major cities. Nirali, Nirlep, Pigeon and Hawkins are some of the popular brands.
