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.
