Rava/Semolina Maddur Vada

Maddur Vada is loved by many and it is an easy snack to prepare enjoy your evening snack.
It can be prepared in many ways.  I am a fan of fried eatables. But I make sure it is done in healthy manner. Fried fritters are nice to have with a cup of coffee/tea or even fresh juice.
This Maddur Vada/Vade is prepared using Rava/Semolina, rice flour and wheat flour. Onions, green chilly and curry leaves are added and it has turned crispy and tasty.
These fritters are usually made with rice flour and Maida. (Alpurpose flour). I have used wheat instead of maida and Rava (more quantity) and less rice flour. Maddur Vada has turned crispy and crunchy. You must fry them on low and medium flame to get the crisp.
Eating oily food is not good for health they say. But you can not resist them. Just enjoy a few and work out, walk, dance and shed out the fat. That is what I can suggest.
Muddur Vada can be served as starter, party time, ladies kitty/tea party and you can have them as snack. Shelf life will only a day. (Fresh and fine).
