Maddur is a small place near Mandya in Karnataka/India. May be this type of Vada is prepared first time in this place and must have got the name as Maddur Vada. You can lots of vendors selling Maddur Vada even in trains and bus stops.
I have used prestige vegetable cutter to cut onions, curry leaves and green chilly. The vegetable chopper helps to chop onions into thin pieces and it helps very much for mixing all the ingredients.
Let us see the recipe Now :
Ingredients :Rice Flour : 2 Cups
Wheat Flour : 2 Tablespoons
Rava/Semolina/Medium sized : 1/2 Cup
Onions : 2 (Medium sized)
Green chilly : 2 to 3
Curry Leaves : One handful
Salt : As required
Jeera /Cumin Seeds : 1/2 Teaspoon
Cooking Oil : 1 Cup + 2 Tablespoons
Method :1. Remove the outer layer of onions and wash it. Cut it into big pieces ( 1 into 4 )
2. Wash green chilly, curry leaves and keep it aside.
3. Keep a pan on the fire and dry roast wheat flour till the raw smell goes off. ( 2 to 3 minutes).
5. Now chop onions, green chilly and curry leaves into small pieces.
( I have used a prestige chopper to chop all the above ingredients).
6 Put all the cut onion mixture to rice flour bowl.
7. Keep a small pan on the fire and put 2 tablespoons of oil. Heat it till its hot.
8. Pour this hot oil on the rice flour and leave it to cool.
9. Mix it well and then add water and prepare thick dough. ( Be careful while adding water).
10. Divide the dough into small portion.
11. Wet /take a drop of oil to your palm, take a small portion of dough and flatten with your fingers.
12. Keep a frying pan on the fire. Add oil and heat.
13. Fry flattened Madduru vada in low and medium flame. Fry on both sides till golden brown.
14. Remove it from the hot oil and put it on kitchen tissue.
15. Repeat the same and prepare the remaining vada.
16. Maddur Vada is nice to eat with a cup of coffee or tea or at any time of the day.
Note :Do not put more water while preparing the dough. It the dough turns watery add little rava or rice flour to make the dough bit thick. Adding more hot oil might turn Vadas very soft and it might break in to small pieces while frying. Adding more onion is optional. Adding garlic to vada is optional.
I have not added garlic, since I do not like it. Let the dough be bit thick. I have used prestige manual chopper to cut onions, chilly and curry leaves. It helps the vegetables cut very thin, easy and avoids messy work.
Time : 30 to 40 Minutes.
Serves : 15 to 20 Maddura Vada can be prepared. According to size.
