In a medium bowl, cover tapioca pearls with water and soak for at least 4 hours up to overnight. Before adding to the recipe, drain well until the water runs clear and starch is removed.
In a small skillet, heat oil over medium heat and fry the peanuts for 2 minutes until aromatic and toasty. Remove and pat off any excess oil, then crush them into a coarse powder.
In a large bowl, add the cooked mashed potatoes, drained tapioca, green chile, cumin, salt, lemon juice, peanuts, and fresh coriander leaves. Mix together until well incorporated.
Divide the mixture into 8 portions and form each into a small ball. Flatten these balls into discs and set them aside on a plate.
In a large non-stick pan, heat oil over medium heat. Once hot, add the Sabudana vada to the pan in a single layer, being sure to not overcrowd the pan.
Fry on each side for 2 to 3 minutes, or until nicely golden and crisp on the outside.
Serve hot with your favorite green coriander chutney and plain yogurt.
