Baked maddur vada
Maddur vada is a savoury fritter named after the place near Mysore in the state of Karnataka (South India). These are crispy snacks and goes well with tea and can also be served as anytime snacks.
Here in this recipe I made vadas from rice flour, semolina which are mixed with sliced onion, grated cabbage, curry leaves, asafoetida. I have retained the ingredients of traditional recipe but baked them as a healthy option instead of deep fried.
