Maddur vadai – karnataka special recipe

I have tasted these vadais during my train journeys from Bangalore to Mysore. It used to taste really delicious,crunchy though a bit oily. I was looking for the recipe and I finally found it Jaya Shenoy’s Dakshin bharat dishes cook book. I made them this weekend and was really good.

I am sending this to Anisheetu who is hosting SWC karnataka this month.
