Maddur Vada
                   Hope every body aware of this instant vada, if not Maddur vada is Karnataka delicacy easy available on roadside shop served with breakfast and as snacks. This snack derives its name from the town of Maddur which is in the Mandya district of Karnataka. Maddur lies between the cities of Bangalore and Mysore and Maddur Vada is frequently sold on train routes of these two cities.
