Maddur Vada

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.

Mom made this last week and sent the picture...

Ingredients:

1 1/4 cup rice flour
1/4 cup maida
1/4 cup rava/ sooji
1 cup finely chopped onions
4 green chillies finely chopped
salt, hing - 4 dashes
1/3 cup skinless broken peanuts
1 tsp white til/ sesame seeds,
1/4 tsp jeera
Curry leaves -2 sprigs chooped
Coriander leaves chopped - 1/4 cup
1 inch ginger- grated
1/8 tsp cooking soda -optional
1 ladleful oil (for mixing, do not heat)
Oil for deep frying

Mix all of the above ingredients. Add some water if required. Bring it to a chappathi dough consistency.
Take a smal balls, flatten it out on oil smeared plastic sheet. It should be as thin as possible. Poke it with a fork at few spots to prevent puffing.
Deep fry till golden brown on both sides. Serve with tomato ketchup or chutney.

Thank u all so much guys!
Sangeeta: You could possibly call it Rava vada.. Just like sabudana vada

Medu vada is made by soaking urad dal and grinding it to a batter. You are right.
Masala vada is made by soaking channa dal and other dals and grinding to a thick coarse batter.
This is Maddur Vada, Maddur is a place in KArnataka, famous for these vadas. They are instant vadas just made by mixing flours with onions, curry leaves and coriander leaves..

Shubha: U r most welcome dear..would love to make them for u!!!
