Maddur vade (Kannada: ) (pronounced "ma-ddur vah-daa", "ma-ddur vah-dey"), is a savoury fritter-type snack from South India. Also known as Maddur vada, this snack derives its name from the town of Maddur which is in the Mandya district of Karnataka. Maddur lies between the cities of Bangalore and Mysore and Maddur Vada is frequently sold on trains that traverse these two cities. It is made of rice flour, semolina and maida flour which are mixed with sliced onion, curry leaves, grated coconut and asafoetida. The onion and curry leaves are fried in a little amount of oil and then mixed with water to make a soft dough. A small amount of dough is taken and made into a patty and then deep fried in oil until it turns golden-brown to make Maddur vade, according to wiki. I have eaten this vada in quite a few places. I loved this vada. Its a very easy snack to make and very delicious too. My hubby belongs to bangalore and he loved it too. Try this finger licking vada served with green chutney and let me know your feedbacks.
