Maddur Vade | Maddur Vada

No comments :
Before I get into the details of today's recipe, I would like to thank each and every reader, subscribers of my blog ,YouTube Channel and my Facebook page for the immense support and encouragement that you all have given me .
This is my 200th Post which I consider as a milestone in my Blogging Journey . Thanks once again dear readers ,without whom this milestone could not have been possible.

Now, coming to today's post ; I have always loved this Maddur Vade (  Karnataka Speciality) for the crispy outside and soft inside .Tastes heavenly when it is hot with some freshly ground coconut chutney.
Maddur Vade is a crispy fritter from the town called Maddur in Karntaka,India, This town lies between the  cities Bangalore &  Mysore in the Mandya District.
The recipe uses basic ingredients in our pantry and can be prepared really quickly for kitty parties, tea time snacks or even as starters for kids birthday parties or any kind of get together.
As this a No Onion No Garlic version, it can be offered as prasad during any Poojas or festival days.

Note : Traditionally this recipe uses Onion as one of the main ingredients. Since, I am into blogging recipes without the use of Onion and Garlic I have skipped it. Many readers ask me can we not make it without Onion, so as usual this is an attempt to help my readers who eat Saathvik food.

Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 20-30 mins
Complexity : Medium
