Recipe of Sabudana Wada – Navratri Fasting recipe

Hetal Kamdar
Sabudana Wada is one of my favorite and the most traditional fasting recipe that is made during Navratri. They are crispy, delicious, and tastes so good.  Sabudana Wada is so versatile that it is not only made during Navratri or Fasting but are also served as breakfast and tea time snacks in many homes.
