Aloo Sabudana Dahi Vada (potato And Sago Dumplings In Beaten Curd)

Aloo and Sago (sabudana) dahi vada is a fast recipe wherein the traditional lentil dumplings are replaced with potato and sago dumplings.I could have never think of such recipes, if I would not have visited 'Nalanda ' in Bihar. It was during my cousins' marriage in Varanasi two years ago, that I got this oppurtunity to Visit' Nalanda'. It is a place of Historical importance and an excellent place to understand 'Buddhism'. I was really impressed by the simplicity of the lifestyle and the food of the University. It was purely vegetarian but still offered variety that was no less a royal treat. Do not miss the opportunity to visit this place once,if you can and enjoy the food. For time being, here is one of the recipe which you can make it at home.
