Maddur Vada |மதூர் வடை

Maddur vada (மதூர் வடை) is a savoury fritter type snack from Maddur town which is between Bangalore & Mysore , Karnataka. This vada ia very famous in Restaurants and road side hotels in karnataka. It is made of semolina(rawa), maida and rice flour which are then mixed with sliced onions, curry leaves, green chili and few other ingredients. Although three flours are used, they are mixed in varying proportions. I used less rice flour to have a different flavour and taste as compared to Nippat (Thattai) which is also a fritter type snack. The vada can be taken with coconut chutney and also goes very well with sambar and rasam rice. The vada can be stored for 3-4 days
