Recently  my husband brought a snack [Maddur vada] from  a hotel, he visited along with his friends.He found it very tasty , and crispy ,and just for a change he packed it for me and asked me to try to prepare at home. But no ingredients were printed on the  wrapper  of the packet.But  by simply assuming, what other  ingredients might    have been added to vada preparation, along with all purpose flour;[Usually these types of vadas are prepared  with all purpose flour,and sooji.]My next step was to prepare vadas., which i tried and to my utter  surprise it came out very well. I thought that i must  post my recipe to my blog.,which i am doing now. Actually it resembled  my previous vada recipe;-Field beans vada”[ see my post ,with recipe and album,published on 2012/02/04 in this blog].That is why i didn’t add to my album.  and the shape and size  was littlebit bigger than  that of mine.
