Easy Maddur Vada vade bada Recipe

It’s been ages since I took any pictures, relying on old pictures to write posts now a days.  This is again one of those recipe I made during my in-laws visit.  I ran out of ideas for evening tea snacks, how many days to make aloo pakoda, namak para, masala vada or other assorted pakodas,  So I tried this maddur vada for a change though I never ate maddur vade before.  It was a nice change and everyone liked it specially MIL and DH, I followed Prathibha’s Maddur Vade recipe which was part of her FF-TT series. 


If you want a change from usual pakoda, urad vada then have to try this and you will like it.  It easy to prepare and taste crunchy outside and soft inside.  Can you see the layers in vada from below pictures?  A wonderful tea time snack to enjoy and this is also I am going to prepare during Rakhi this year, you can try too.  If you are still looking for Rakhi ideas then check out my previous roundups, lot’s of wonderful years.

Easy Maddur Vada Bada Recipe


1. Finely chop onion, green chillies, ginger (if using), curry leaves, cilantro.

~ Finely chopping of onion is essential if not while deep frying onion pieces will float on oil and get’s burnt! So do finely chop it.

2. Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl except oil and water and it will have crumble texture due to water in onions.
