Mixed flour recipe or hittina vade recipe explained with step by step pictures. Hittina vade is a very popular recipe from North Karnataka and is prepared using mixed flours like rice flour, maida, wheat flour, gram flour and jowar flour. Mixed flour poori or hittina vade is very very tasty. Apart from these flours a spice paste prepared using onion, curry leaves, cumin seeds and green chilies is added. And that makes these pooris or hittina vade spicy and tasty.

Hittu translates to flour in Kannada language and this type of spiced pooris are called by name vade, so is the name "hittina vade". These pooris are very tasty as compared to regular plain pooris. I am sure, you all will love this and this is going to be in your favorite list soon.

Pooris are generally served with potato curry or aloo bhaji. But it goes well with any curry, sambar or even you can serve it along with chutney. But these pooris are best served with coconut chutney.
