I love all the Karnataka tiffin items. Maddur vada is generally not served in all restaurants. However, there are a couple of fast food joints which serve this awesome snack..
Ever since I went back to Chennai, I tried to a find a perfect maddur vade recipe. I searched several websites and finally came upon thisrecipe as given by Shri. Kamat. We slightly altered the measures and tried it. It was a huge hit and it is my signature appetizer whenever I invite people for dinner.
