Successfully i finished my two weeks of long marathon with interesting theme,i went for baked dishes for the first week and regional dishes for the second theme. Do you want know about my third week's theme, its going to be street foods/condiments/Misc/Recipeless posts. Seriously i love the themes for this long marathon and believe me i was struggling for a while to decide the recipes under this theme, finally i came to a decision to cook just streetfoods and condiments, some of recipes under this theme pulled me to think sometimes beyond my limit.
For the first day of this week's blogging marathon, i have to cook with 'M' as starting letter either under street foods or condiments. Initially i wanted to make mayonnaise at home,but somehow i prepared this fantastic street food from Karnataka called Maddur Vada, this vada is quite famous if you have travelled towards Mysore from Bangalore. Maddur vade is a type of snack or vada, which took its name from a town called Maddur in Mandya district of Karnataka. This vada is prepared simply with maida,rice flour and semolina with few more easy ingredients.Whenever we travel through train from Bangalore to Mysore,my dad never fail to get these crispy snacks. This post makes me nostalgic and am missing travelling like earlier in trains here.
1cup Rice flour
1cup Semolina /Rava
Few curry leaves
1no Onions(big & chopped finely)
3nos Green chillies (chopped)
1tbsp Ginger (chopped finely)
2tbsp Crushed peanuts
1/2tsp Cumin seeds
Chopped coriander leaves
3tbsp Oil (for dough)
Oil for frying
Take the maida,rice flour,semolina, chopped onions, chopped greenchillies,curry leaves, crushed peanuts,finely chopped ginger, cumin seeds, chopped coriander leaves, salt.
Gradually add the oil and turn everything as a bread crumbs, slowly add enough warm water to turn everything as a dough.
Knead well for about 3minutes, cover it with a damn cloth and keep aside for 30 minutes.
Take lemon sized ball from the dough,place a ball inbetween 2 greased plastic sheet.
Flatten it with the tip of your hands, no need to make thin.
Repeat the same process with the remaining dough.
Heat the oil for frying, once the oil is hot
Drop gently the flattened vada, fry them until they turns golden brown.
