Maddur Vade is a snack named after the town Maddur in Mandya. This is one thing which no one would want to miss when travelling from Bangalore to Mysore :)
Its named vade but is quite crisp like thattai and here goes the recipe...


Rice flour: 1 cup
Maida/ All purpose flour: 1/2 cup
Rava/ Semolina: 1/2 cup
Red onion: 1 medium
Green chillies: 5-6 nos. (or as per taste)
Red chilli powder: 1 tsp 
Asafoetida / hing: a few generous pinches
Curry leaves: a sprig
Cashewnuts (chopped): 1 tsp (Optional)
Salt as per taste
Water for kneeding
Oil for deep frying


In a bowl take the flours and rava and add the chopped onions, green chillies, curry leaves, chilli powder, hing and salt and mix well.
In a pan, heat the oil for deep frying.
Add a spoonful of warm oil to the bowl with the flour mix.
Kneed this into a dough by adding water. It should be slightly thinner and softer than the chapathi dough. 
Make small flat rounds out of the dough by patting onto a plastic / butterpaper sheet.
Deep fry till brown and crisp and serve hot with chutney. 
Tastes awesome even without any side dish.

Ciao till next time...Have fun! Vidya.
