Baked Maddur Vada

Maddur vada is a popular evening snack from a place called Maddur near Mysore (Karnataka). I have tasted this when we were in Bangalore. It is a crunchy spicy deep fried snack l. I made this vada with rice flour, jowar flour, wheat flour, rawa, onions and some spices. Since I have been trying to be on a diet, I tried my hand at baking this dish. Maddur vada and masala tea is the best combo. It’s a good evening snack. It tastes the same as deep fried vadas. Let us see how to bake this snack.

In a big bowl, add semolina, jowar, rice flour, wheat flour ,salt, red chilli powder, coriander leaves and mix well.


In a small pan heat the oil. Add green chillies and curry leaves. Fry for a few seconds then add asafotedia. Now add chopped onion. Saute till it is transperant.


Add this to the flour mix.

Sprinkle little water and make a dough.


Keep the dough for 10 minutes.


Preheat the oven for 10 minutes. Apply some oil on the baking tray.
Divide the dough into equal big lemon sized portions.
In a plastic sheet or aluminum foil keep the round balls and spread the balls into round shape. Spread it thick and even.
