Maddur Vada

This yummy treat was my favorite during my stay in Bangalore...I tried this recipe at home, and it turned out to be a major hit.


1 cup Fine Suji or Fine Semolina (Rava)
1/2 cup Rice Flour
1/4 cup Maida or All Purpose Flour
1 tsp Red chilli powder
1 tbsp Hot oil for kneading
1 big onion finely chopped onions
1 tsp Fennel seeds (saunf)
2 tsp channa dal or chopped peanuts
1 small bunch Coriander leaves Finely chopped
1 small bunch Curry leaves Finely chopped
2 Green chillies finely chopped
2 tsp salt (or to taste)
3 cups oil for deep frying


In a mixing bowl add rice flour, maida, rava, red chilli powder salt and hot oil and mix well. Knead this well until it becomes a thick dough. Add the chopped - onions. Coriander leaves, curry leaves, fennel seeds, channa dal and chillies and sprinkle a little bit of water make this into make a thick dough. Take a golf ball size of this mixture and flatten on your hand (apply a little oil over your hand before you do this) or a greased plastic sheet. Drop into hot oil and deep fry until golden brown. Serve with coconut / mint chutney

This is a great recipe... You will definitely love :)

Tips: You may want to knead the plain dough in a food processor / mixie . This gives a uniform dough. Do not add a lot of water, as the onions may also release some water when mixed in. This might make the vada very oily. You can also roll the dough out into 1/2 inch thick sheet and cut using a cookie cutter.
