ABOUT Guilt Free Sabudana Bites with Healthy Yoghurt Dip RECIPE

Sabudana wada has always been a favourite with me. But the thought of the excess oil it consumes while frying, which we in turn consume gives me the shivers sometimes. Presenting my version of guilt free sabudana wadas. Best had with cucumber yoghurt dip.
