Crispy Madduru Vada

Madduru Vada is fried snack which is one of the favourite fritter of many. Madduru is a place in Karnataka, India. It is a small town and this Vada must have been made in this particular town. Anyways Maddur Vada is world famous now.

I have used rice flour, maida (all Purpose flour) and medium size rava. Vada should be very thin so that it turns as crispy and stays for at least 4 to 5 days.

Things needed :

Rice powder : 1 cup
Samolina ( Rava Medium size ) : 1 cup
Maida ( White flour ) : 1 cup
Salt : To taste
Green chillies : 2 to 3
Onion : 2 ( Medium size )
Curry leaves : 8 to 10 leaves
Oil : 1 Cup + 1 Tablespoon
Water : As required
Jeera/Cumin Seeds : 1 Teaspoon

Method :

1. Wash and cut onions, green chilly, curry leaves and grate ginger.
2. Take a big bowl and add all the flours and mix it well.

3. Add cut onions, chilly, grated ginger and salt. Add jeera and mix the dry flour nicely.

4. Heat a tablespoon of oil and pour it on the top of flours. Let it cool.
5. Prepare a thick dough and kneed it nicely.
6. Divide the dough into small portion. Ftatten the small portion of dough on your palm.
7. Keep a pan and heat. Put a cup of oil and let it get hot.

8. Now leave the vada which you have flattened, slowly into hot oil.
9.Let it cook on low flame. Keep watching. Turn the other side of the vada and cook till golden brown.

10. Remove from the frying pan and put it on a kitchen tissue. (It absorbs the extra oil).

11. Repeat the same with remaining dough.
12. Serve Hot, Crispy Madduru Vada with a cup of coffee or tea.

Note :

The dough should be thick. Using the roller to flatten the vada is optional. Use of plastic sheet is optional. Hot oil helps the vada to be crispy. Try to flatten the vada in to thin circle. Thin Vadas stay for a long time. Adding any spice is optional. Use of little more oil helps the vada to be thin. Thin Vadas stay for a long time. Frying in low and medium flame helps the vada turn crispy.
Time : 40 Minutes
Serves : 20 to 25 Vadas can be prepared.
