maddur vada recipe

maddur vada gets its name from the town of maddur in karnataka. since the town is between the cities of mysore and bangalore, maddur vada is sold in the trains that ply between these two cities (source wikipedia).

i had got a request to share an authentic recipe of maddur vade. the maddur vada recipe shared here is a really good one and gives you a nice crisp exterior with a faintly soft texture inside. i am not sure if this is an authentic recipe but it is a good recipe and tastes yum.

best is to serve maddur vada with a coconut chutney. if you do not have time to make coconut chutney, then you can also serve with coriander chutney or mint chutney or tomato ketchup. this recipe makes 10 to 12 vadas, but you can also halve or double the recipe as per your requirements.
