Sago Fritters (Traditional Indian name: Sabudana Vada)

As a child, my family would travel to India annually to maintain our bonds with extended family and of course keep my brother and I closely tied to our country and culture. Many of the most memorable aspects of my experiences there included enjoying the culinary delights of India, with family, around the dinner table. So many states, so many sub cultures, and such a rich palette of tastes. In other words, I was always hungry for more! This dish is a special favorite because it hails from our region of the country – Maharashtra. It is enjoyed best with sweet chilli sauce (I speak for myself on this one but am confident you will agree).
