Sabudana Appe


Sabudana Appe with tempered coconut chutney

A healthier option to sabudana vadas is appe. Tastewise also appe is a great variation to the regular sabudana vadas.



  • 1/2 cup sago/sabudana
  • 1 1/4th cup (approximately)
  • 3 potatoes boiled, skin peeled and mashed and kept aside
  • 1/4th cup roasted and coarsely ground peanuts(as per choice)
  • Sugar to taste( optional)
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds,a small piece of ginger and 3 to 4 green chillies ground coarsely( adjust chillies as per spice required)
  • 2 to 3 tbsp rinsed and pat dried coriander leaves finely chopped(optional,as many people don’t use coriander leaves on fasting days)


  • Place the sago in a colander and pass it through running tap water to let go of excess starch. Soak it in water just a little above the sago level for an hour. Then drain the excess water and keep covered for at least 6 hours.Do check it to make sure its softened. If not sprinkle a little water and turn it over as the sago has to be separate. Cover and keep aside.
  • When ready to prepare the appe uncover the sago , add mashed potatoes, peanut powder, cumin seeds and green chilli ginger paste, chopped coriander leaves, salt, sugar and mix well. Try not to crush the sago much, so that the flavour of sago is retained.
  • Heat an appe pan, grease each depression with oil. Fill the sago mix into each depression. Cover and cook till golden and crisp. Uncover the pan, turn over the appe with a fork and fry till golden and crisp on the other side without cover.
  • Serve sabudana appe with chutney or sweet curds.
  • Sabudana appe taste best when served hot.
  • This proportion yeilds approximately 25 appe.


  • 1/2 cup sago gives approximately 1 3/4th cup of soaked sago.


  • Add salt to the sabudana appe dough just before preparing the appe, because salt releases moisture and the appe dough will become soft. The dough should not be moist to get perfect crispiness.
  • If the dough is moist add a little waterchestnut flour(shingada pith).
