This is a post long awaiting, as I made these vadams when we had a few days of sun here, I wanted to utilise the sun to full extent and was busy making some of the Papads, but, I had a tough time as the weather kept fluctuating and I was really having a hard time to sun dry them. I was not quite happy with the results, and I must thank my daughter Aishu, Chondu and Hubby who helped me make these she only spread them on the sheets.some day when they start cooking on their own they might appreciate that I have written this in my blog!!.
I wanted to send this to the Sago seeds event, which I missed, as I was away in the weekend and couldn’t post it right on time 🙁
I would like to add this as to tell you that the Tomato and the Green Vadams I made it with eye measurements, because I increased the 1 cup of sago to more which I did not measure, when I used Tomatoes and the green leaves. When you are using the tomatoes and green leaves with the below said measurements reduce the ingredients when doing for a cup.
SABBAKKI SANDIGE/JAVARASI VADAM/SAGO PAPADS
I made these vadams in three different flavours so I am posting all of them in one go!
Here is the recipe the basic recipe which you can alter by changing the flavours…
1 Cup of Sago
4 to 5 Cups of water
1 Cup Yogurt
fist full Green Chilies
salt as required
1/4 bunch of Coriander leaves
Soak sago in the night itself, when you soak it let the water be just 2 inch above the sago. In the morning grind other ingredients in a mixie, and keep it aside, In a large (I usually use my cooker) broad vessel, pour around 4 cups of water and the sago and allow it cook, you have to cook just like the sago paayasam, where the sago looks like a transparent bubble then add the ground ingredients and salt as required, and cook it well.
Then once it cooks well, keep it aside with a lid closed to it.
Spread a plastic sheet or a dhoti spread it in the sun and take a spoonful of small rounds on them, and sun dry it well, once they are quite dry store it in a dry container and fry them in oil and use it whenever you want.
I love this vadam with Curd rice!!.
I need to thank my Mum as she was the one who taught me lot of these sun dried vadams/vada/papads.
The only thing is the sun at the right time, when I need it! :))
