Maddur Vade

         Growing up in India, summer vacations would always include a trip to Bangalore (now Bengaluru )… followed by a road trip to Mysore. The drive would not be complete without  a stop at Maddur, a quaint little town with rustic charm,  just halfway to Mysore, famous for its crispy, delicious ' Maddur Vade '… followed by some steaming hot and frothy filter coffee .

        Even now, when in Bangalore, we  take a trip to Mysore and stop for the vade, and for those who have tasted these irresistible fritters you will agree that over the years nothing has changed …the same taste in every bite….!! 


Now imagine miles away on a summer afternoon, a friend visits you with these priceless delicacies from Maddur .…Well,  all we can say is, not a crumb was wasted.!!!!

             Over the years we have tried and tested different recipes for  Maddur vade and we think this  one is the closest …

Ingredients : makes about 15-20

Onions: 1 finely chopped
Curry leaves: 2-3 chopped
Cilantro: small bunch finely chopped
Green chili: 3-4 finely chopped
Peanut: roasted and powder: 1tsp
All purpose flour: 1 cup
Rice Flour: 1 cup
Semolina: 2 tbsp
Salt for taste

Oil: for deep frying

Mix all the above ingredients with water (other than the oil). Pat the dough into round shape like patties with your hands on a sheet of foil , Heat the oil, and deep fry  till golden brown…enjoy with your favorite chutney or sauce.
