CRISPY GUJARATI SABUDANA VADA

Sabudana Vada or Sago Vada are popular during Hindu fasts. These deep-fried crispy sago fritters are made with the addition of sugar and lemon juice to give that authentic Gujarati taste. We love eating them during Mahashivratri, Navratri and Janamasthmi and serve them with piping hot sweet Masala Chai.

WAGAMAMA KATSU SALAD DRESSING

I keep getting drawn to the Wagamama Katsu Curry, not because of the Katsu Curry itself, but the Wagamama Katsu Salad Dressing! The dressing is quite tangy, fragrant and strong in flavour but definitely memorable! This 5-minute Asian style salad dressing is perfect when paired with fresh mixed salad leaves.
