The fine and crispy taste of this maddur vada would make you add it to your list of favorite snacks.

If you ever travel by train or bus between Bengaluru and Mysuru, you will come across the vendors selling maddur vada. Both adults and kids wait eagerly for these vendors. Even I tasted my first ever Maddur vada when I was travelling from Mysuru to Bengaluru.

Maddur vada has a slightly hard crust and a soft core. The onion pieces in it elevate the taste of the vada. The flour and rawa proportions can be varied as per your taste. Add more maida to get soft maddur vadas and more rawa to get crispy vadas.
