- Take all the ingredients (except for the deep-frying oil) in a mixing bowl. Make smooth and firm dough out of it. Add only small quantity of water while kneading the dough because onion has the tendency to leave some water. Rest the dough covered for 10 minutes.
- Pinch out a lemon size dough. Shape it like a tennis ball. Apply some oil on a plastic sheet/butter paper/silver paper. Keep the dough ball in the center. Apply few drops of oil on your fingers. Press the ball with your fingers, extending the edges to form a thick, round shape. The diameter of the shape should be about 3 - 4 inches.
- Heat oil for deep-frying. Drop the pressed round dough into the hot oil. Fry both sides until it turns light brown. Remove on an absorbent paper towel. Repeat the procedure for the entire dough. You can fry it two at a time.
- Enjoy eating Maddur vada after 10 minutes. It tastes good even when it is not hot. Eat it while sipping a cup of hot coffee for the best taste and pleasure!
