Maddur Vade/ Semolina Fritters

Maddur vade is one of the easiest and tasty snack down south in Karnataka. I am rather fond of it because it connects me to my parents. Not only my mother is an expert on Maddur Vade, but also that my parents lives in Maddur!
Legend is that the Mysore Maharaja used to order these Vadas right from Maddur!!!


Sooji 1/4 cup
Rice Flour 1/4 cup
Maida 1/4 cup
Onion small 1 chopped fine
Green Chillies 3-4
Curry leaves 10-12 chopped fine
Jeera 1/2 tsp
salt to taste
Oil to deep fry

  • Heat oil in a pot.
  • Combine Sooji, rice flour, maida, salt, curry leaves, onion, chillies and salt.
  • Add 2 tbsp of hot oil to the mixture. Mix well with a spoon, do not use your finger to avoid scalding!
  • Sprinkle little water to the mixture to form a tight dough.
  • Pinch a lime sized ball from the dough. flatten it slightly on your palm.
  • Test if the oil is hot enough by dropping a small ball of dough into the oil. If it sizzles, the oil is ready.
  • Gently slide the vade into hot oil. Fry till golden on both sides.
  • Another variation of the vade is to flatly roll out the lime size dough ball, just like you would a roti and then deep fry it till crisp and golden. This version stays good for about a week, while the other version tastes best when hot.
