Farali Buff Vada (Stuffed sago and potato fried balls)

Buff vada is very popular farali (fasting) recipe of Gujarat.This is one of my favorite Farali recipes. Buff vada generally made during vrat (fasting) days like, akadashi, Janamashtami and Navaratri fasting.

It is made out of potato and sago and stuffed with coconut and peanuts stuffing. It is spicy and little tangy in taste. You can serve it as a snack in fasting days with coriander chutney or with curd.
