1 Tsp.
To Taste
2 Tbsp.
To Deep Fry
1.     In a mixing bowl, add all the dry ingredients.
2.     Add chopped onion and mix well, to this add the hot oil and mix well so that the dried ingredients look like crumbled.
3.     Add water little by little ( I approximately needed not more than ¼ cup of water because the moisture of the onion would have already made the flour a little wet )  and make a stiff dough. Let the dough rest for 5-0 minutes.
4.     Pinch a small amount of dough and make balls out of it and flatten them to round circle as shown and set aside.

5.     Heat oil to deep fry. Deep fry the flattened circles to golden.
6.     Crispy Maddur Vada ready to serve.
