  1. Hi
    I keep trying sago vadas very often.I shall try
    this too. In south indian recipe curd is used.
    soaking sago in curd gives different taste and
    also to avoid the vada bursting--it is advised
    to grind the soaked sago in pulse mode in mixie
    and then follow the steps to make vada.
    Even raw potatoes can be used by scraping it
    and adding--thanks to vah-re-vah chef for that.
