Jazz up your tea-time with this awesomely crunchy snack that hails from Karnataka.

Very famous in the Mysore region, the Maddur Vada is a classic evening snack made by deep-frying a dough of mixed flours, semolina, onions and green chillies. For some extra crunch, it is common to throw in a handful of roasted peanuts or cashews too.

This recipe requires absolutely no soaking or grinding, and can be made quickly without much advance planning or preparation.

It has an attractive colour and appetizing aroma, and a taste that’s even better than your high expectations. Enjoy hot and fresh with a cup of steaming filter coffee.
