Maddur Vade

I am sure people who know this snack would at least drool at its name once! A deep fried snack enjoyed anytime of the day ;) Few days back I saw these crispy vades on Chitra Amma's Kitchen and Naale maadthiya ? (will u make them tomorrow?) haan! was my hubby's reaction :D . Added to this already mounted temptation a friend of mine told me that she made M.Vades during our regular harate (chat) and I was all ......J, so I went upon making them.  Thanks to my friends Viji, Mayura and also Chitra Amma for their crispy maddur vade recipe. Here is how they looked like..(they were my share of vades ;) )

You need the following to make these delicious fried snack :
Onions : 1 cup (onions are chopped into small pieces) (1 cup holds 100ml water)
Green chilli paste : 1 tsp (u can add more if u need spicier vades)
Curry leaves : 5-8 (chopped)
Coriander leaves: 2 tbsp (chopped)
Maida/All purpose flour : 1 cup (1 cup holds 100ml water)
Chiroti rava/semolina: 1/2 cup
Rice Flour: 2tbsp
salt as required
Hot oil : 1/4 cup

Oil for deep frying

Method:
1.Mix all ingredients given above using a spoon.Caution : Do not use  your hands to mix the flour at this stage as hot oil might burn your fingers.
 2.Leave the mixture aside for 15 minutes. The moisture in onions will wet the flour at this stage.
3.If do not intend to deep fry at this stage do not mix the flour with water. You can mix it with water when you want to deep fry. You can also mix partial flour with water and leave the other part. This small tip helps prevent the dough becoming soggy. This is an important step.
4.Heat oil over low flame. When oil is warm start with the next step.
5.If you wish to deep fry vades, sprinkle water over the flour and mix to make dough. The dough here at this stage resembles soft chapathi dough.
6. Pull a small lemon sized dough and pat it on a greased non sticky paper or laminated paper (food wrapping paper in Singapore can be used) to make a nice circle.
7. Transfer these to your fingers (hold it on 4 fingers) and slide them over to hot oil. Be careful.
8. Fry them till they are red and crisp. Drain them on a kitchen towel. Enjoy hot hot vades with coffee or tea.
9. I made masala chai/tea with hot hot vades. If you wish to learn more about Masala Chai you can visit this page : Cooking Station-Masala Tea

Thank you, Lakshmi for the yummy vade.

Cheers,

YOSEE said...

so what if it is a sinful, calorie loaded, non-nutritious snack ? I never fight temptation when it comes to good old Maddur Vade. Judging by the sizzling picture, I'm sure your hubby would have cooed : "Naalenoo maadthiya, haan ?"

Premyscakes said...

vade with cofee is very much tempting.

Vani said...

Oooh, I LOVE maddur vade! I always make it a point to stop at Maddur Tiffany's on the way to Mysore and have their delicious vades! This looks great, LG!

Hi Lakshmi,
I did Maddur vade during the weekend as my son wanted it. Today, I shared it with my colleagues. They all loved it and I've shared your recipe link to all of them.

I am also from Bangalore and many felt they got transported to Maddur for few minutes after eating the Vade :-)

Thanks,
Mina.

Nagesh said...

hello, ivattu maddur vadey thinna beku antha anisitu, google maadidey, nimma site banthu ... sakhattagidey nimma recipe!! makkalu thumba enjoy maadidru!! thank you!!

i want to let you know some variations that i tried, it worked great!

instead of chillies, i used saarina pudi and dhaniya pudi ... my kids dont like chillies!!

instead of plain hot oil during mixing the dough, i used arshina/saasivey/ingu vaggarney ... sakhattagittu!!

also, instead of patting on baking paper, i patted on my hand ... solpa neerina kai maadikobeku ... works very well!!

thanks again for your great recipe, very authentic taste, maddurigey hogi thinda haagey aaytu!!
