And with that, guys the last of the year's bank holiday is done and dusted. This year's long summer is bidding us adieu. Sunny spells have gone and the weather has taken turnaround, and this cooler and intense downpours call for nothing but deep fried fritters and masala chai.

It was coincident that this month in Shhhhh cooking secretly challenges, Priya Suresh of Priya's Versatile Recipes is a renowned fellow food blogger and dear friend whom I admire for her cooking, baking skills and definitely her energy.  Now that I have a chance, let me ask her 'Priya, do you get more than 24 hours in a day?' because the way you cook and blog, no others do!

Priya gave me two ingredients, rice flour and green chillies to cook for a Karnataka theme. Once again my knowledge of Karnataka was so limited, I had to surf the net to find out more about Karnataka and It's cuisine.

While I was searching the recipes of Karnataka, I saw Akki Roti recipe that can be made with Rice flour and green chillies, but already being that recipe on my blog here, I had to extend my search and settled with this Maddur or Madhur Vada recipe.

I have prepared Maddur Vada in the past, but never had time to post on the blog. So, glad even this time vada turned out so well and whole family and friends enjoyed a lot.

Why name Maddur/Madhur Vada?

In the state of Karnataka, there is a small town called ' Maddur' and you can find these irresistible fritters in every corner, hence these fritters are called 'Maddur Vada'. Travellers who pass through this town cannot ignore it's frying aroma but give up and indulge in these crispy and tasty vadas.

Can I make Instant Maddur Vada?

Maddur vada can be prepared instantly, and you do not need any raising agent to prepare these vadas.

Can I omit curry leaves?

I don't recommend, as curry leaves are important ingredients in south Indian cuisine and lend beautiful aroma and taste to these vadas.

Can I add dry or frozen curry leaves?

Certainly, you can.

Can I make Vegan Maddur Vada?

Yes, you can. Instead of ghee or butter add oil.

What can I serve with Maddur vada? 

Maddur Vada goes well with south Indian style coconut chutney, tea or coffee. On a warm day, serve with cold drinks such as cola, lemonade or milkshake.

  1. I love these Vadas, use to have them often at tea time as we had a tea stall never our apartment in Bangalore selling them. The distinct flavour is from the chilis and curry leaves. Lovely props.

  2. Love these Vadas with a hot cup of filter coffee. Yes, these are perfect travel snacks and in earlier times, people never worried about the calories, opted for home cooked sweets and snacks to carry while travelling in trains etc yet remained healthy and fit. We should do that more often. Loved the rustic props used here.

  12. I have often enjoyed the Maddur vada while travelling through Maddur on the way to Coonoor and I had thought they would be very difficult to attempt at home. Your recipe makes it sound less difficult and the image of the crispy vada is very tempting. I should try this soon. Sujata Shukla from PepperOnPizza
