The iconic snack turns 100 this month. We take a happy birthday taste tour
My father summed up, a la Gordon Ramsay, what he called a “fine” Maddur vada. “It is brittle yet soft,” he said. “And with just a little pressure, the vada should disintegrate like sooji, powdery and dry.” “Never soggy,” he added for good measure. The iconic savoury turns 100 this month.
Maddur is a sleepy town some 80 km from Bengaluru and it was in April 1917 that its famous vada first appeared in Vegetarian Tiffin Room (VRR) in
...

Maddur’s only railway station. From then to the present, there have been generations of foodies who have done road trips from Bengaluru to Mysuru and stopped at Maddur just to buy the vadas. It certainly seemed that the best way to celebrate the vada’s centenary year would be to make an early morning road trip to Maddur and take a bite.
I decide to stop briefly at Ramnagar for breakfast. There are granite outcrops wherever the eye can see, a landscape made famous by Sholay , which was filmed here. A villager tells us the stall at Maddur railway station has shut down and Maddur Tiffany is the “real thing” now. Coincidentally, I find that one of the owners, D.N. Chathura, has also landed there today. He is a fourth generation descendant of H.D. Hebbar who managed VRR at the station from 1948 to 1973. Chathura is happy to share the Maddur vada story with me.
It all began with the River Shimsha that flows along Maddur. In the early 20th century, trains hauled by steam engines chugged on meter gauge tracks to reach Bengaluru. The easy access to Shimsha meant that all passing trains stopped at Maddur for 20 to 30 minutes just to fill up their water tanks. As soon as the train stopped, Ramchandra Budhya from Kundapura, clearly a born entrepreneur, used the time to entice the passengers to buy his idlis and vadas.
“Family legend has it that on a particularly busy day, he just mixed up some ingredients and instead of making them in the shape of pakoras, which would take longer to cook, he flattened the mixture into discs and fried them. The result was a new snack that became popular as Maddur vada.” After that, of course, flat became the new black.
Budhya started VRR in 1917 to sell his legendary vada. In 1948, H.D. Hebbar, Chathura’s ancestor, took over. He followed the recipe meticulously and later, his son D. Gopalaiah decided to sell the vadas outside the station as well. Gopalaiah’s son, Jayaprakash, started the standalone eatery called Maddur Tiffanys in 1987. It was only early this year that VRR at the railway station shut shop. “There were too many headaches in running it,” says Chathura with a laugh. “Trains stop only for a couple of minutes, illegal vendors hop on selling their versions of Maddur vadas, and the Railways pegs the price of the vada at Rs. 10.” So, on January 28 this year, another icon became history.
Chathura urges me to check out Maddur Tiffany. He won’t tell me how many vadas are fried each day but says that on weekends, sales are high, about 1,000 vadas at least.
Whole, hot, also broken
As I reach the outskirts of Maddur, a large board by the highway proclaims: Maddur Tiffanys. My destination has arrived rather easily. It is an unpretentious eatery with an open kitchen and a grimy board that lists out all the South Indian delicacies it offers—akki roti, dosai, idli, uddin vada and, of course, Maddur vada. A glass showcase has ‘broken Maddur vadas’ to be sold by weight: Rs. 200 a kg.
I ask the man behind the counter if I can see how the vadas are made. He goes into the kitchen to find out.
As I wait, I chat with Harish, a gram panchayat member who is here to buy some vada. “Sir Ronald Reagan liked Maddur vada and would ask for it,” he says. Jaffer Sharief, the former railway minister, liked them so much that all trains going up to Mumbai, Chennai or Hyderabad, would carry the snack. Harish leaves with a takeaway parcel generously filled with Maddur vadas. I notice a waiter going into a long annexe behind the kitchen with a plastic bag that has kitchen coats and caps.
Soon, I am ushered into the small kitchen. An industrial-sized electric chimney is buzzing loudly. Three men, clad in coats and caps, are making vadas in a seamless tango. Every day, says the manager, two teams of three men each work in two shifts. Ramesh is slicing onions into thin juliennes on a log of wood that is deeply grooved, thanks to much action over the years. Chathura told me earlier that the onions come from Pune and have the right amount of water content that gives the vadas the “real taste”. Ramesh, who chops up one gunny bag of onions in a shift, is surprisingly dry-eyed. “If you cut onions every day, there won’t be tears,” he says with a smile.
But the ‘leader’ of the trio, the chef, is the mixer of the ingredients. Subbanna, 51, has been working here for four years, having learned to “mix” from his predecessor by “just standing and watching”. He mixes the sliced onions with sooji (bought from one particular mill in Bengaluru), salt, ghee, butter and maida.
“The ghee is for fragrance and the butter for crispiness,” Subanna explains, adding that butter from Mandya is the best for the vadas. He mixes with precision, without tasting, and pushes the dough towards Venkatesh, who sections it into balls, flattens them, and slides them into the oil. In a minute, I count him making at least 50 vadas. The trio estimates 500 vadas per shift.
In spite of being assailed by Maddur vada all day, Subbanna eats it for breakfast. “It is my Gowri amma (holy mother) who has fed and clothed me.” He is not sure if Venkatesh has it in him to learn “mixing” but expresses confidence in a trainee in the second shift.
Soon, two busloads of passengers come in. The Maddur vadas are ferried to the outer kitchen. I get some hot vadas packed.
Back in Bengaluru, two hours later, I open the paper box and put them on a plate. They are cold, but I have been warned by Subbanna to not reheat them. “The taste will go,” he said. My father breaks a piece gently. The centre, he declares, is a bit soggy. The taste, he says, is okay. I remember Chathura telling me the raw ingredients available today are not of the old standard. Yes, not many things remain the same. But the Maddur vada is still trying valiantly.

The highly popular Maddur Vade just turned hundred! If you have ever taken a train journey in Karnataka, then you are sure to have come across this delicious, crispy snack. Its origin story too is as fascinating as its taste. Ramachandra Budhya was the owner of Vegetarian Refreshment Room (VRR) way back in 1917. Budhya didn't have time to cook pakodas for his customers . So he made a thin patty out of the ingredients and fried it. Interesting isn’t it?

BENGALURU: The family that introduced the popular Maddur vade from the platform of the Maddur railway station has shut its iconic establishment. This was the stall’s 100th year running and it was slated to complete a century of cooking the onion-flavoured fritters, a favourite snack with rail passengers, on April 20.
A combination of factors led to the shutdown —the huge annual licence fee charged by the Railways since 2012, competition from other vendors who sold it inside the trains unauthorised and the doubling of the Mysuru-Bengaluru line which ensured that most trains stopped only between 30 seconds and one minute at Maddur station.
The

closure of ‘Vegetarian Refreshment Room’ was effected following the completion of its contract with the Railways.
Choked with emotion, proprietor D Jayaprakash, whose great-grandfather is said to have perfected the recipe, told Express, “We chose not to tell the world about it. This is something very emotional for me. It was like a father-son relationship I shared with my refreshment stall, with me in the role of the son.” Jayaprakash continues to run the Maddur Tiffanys next to Satyagraha Soudha on the Bengaluru-Mysuru Highway.

Train hits vintage jeep parked for photoshoot
Passengers of Mangala Express had a narrow escape on Saturday morning when the train hit a jeep, parked on the tracks for photoshoot, near Basavanapura in Ramanagaram district, about 45 km from Bengaluru.
The train, with over 700 passengers, was travelling at a speed of 50 km per hour, from Mysuru to Bengaluru, when the incident occurred at 7.25 a.m.

youth from Bengaluru allegedly entered the restricted area, just less than 2 km from the Ramanagaram railway station, for photoshoot of a vintage jeep, Railway Protection Force (RPF) sources said.
The youth parked the vehicle on the track. They did not remove the vehicle even after hearing the sirens of the train.
The alerted drivers spotted the jeep and applied brakes. However, it halted after hitting the jeep, sources said.
The youth fled the scene, Ramanagaram police said.
While the jeep was damaged, the engine and track remain undamaged.
The train had to halt for nearly one hour as the technical staff and maintenance personnel of the railways had to issue green signal to move the train.

for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction; the loco (and the train) thus received the same force by which they impacted the jeep.
Because the jeep itself is heavy, owing to its own inertia it would have given very high amount of reaction force before allowing the mechanical force to dissipate throguh its surface.
This is also the reason why many trains on hitting buffaloes/bulls end up getting delayed; the impact of hitting a 1 ton bull/buffalo usually damages the loco, many a times disabling the brake pipe, for instance

The Mysuru-Varanasi Express is set to become the country’s first visually-challenged friendly train when it chugs off from the city on Tuesday.
The bi-weekly express Train Number 16229/16230 which leaves Mysuru for Varanasi on Tuesdays and Thursdays, has been provided with metallic Braille signages inside the coaches indicating the berth numbers, location of alarm pull chains, toilets and emergency windows. The Braille signage also has instructions on the

operation of emergency exit windows for the use of visually challenged in times of any exigency. The initiative was financed by Pratap Simha, Mysuru MP, from the MPLAD Fund. Mr. Simha inaugurated and inaugurated by him on Monday.
Though the Puri-Delhi Purushottam Express was the first train in the country to have a Braille-embedded coach, the Mysuru-Varanasi Express is the first train in the country where all reserved coaches have been embedded with Braille signage, said Rajkumar Lal, Divisional Railway Manager, Mysuru division of the South Western Railways.
“The plan is to extend the facility to all the reserved coaches of long-distance trains in a phase-wise manner,” he added. Braille signage has been introduced on one rake of the Mysuru-Varanasi Express and the facility will be provided for the second rake of the same train as well. The Chamundi Express and the Mysuru-Talguppa Express are other two trains that will be provided with Braille signages after this, said Mr.Lal.
The Mysuru Division, which operates 118 trains, has plans for such signages for all long-distance and express trains.
Ms. Netravati, a visually-impaired person, welcomed the initiative and said that it will help them identify the seats or berths without seeking help from others. “We will be more independent and at times people do not respond properly as they to tend to be in a hurry to locate their berths,” said Netravati.
However, the coach numbers have conventional signage and the plan is to affix Braille signage for the coaches as well, said officials.

With track doubling work on the Mysuru-Bengaluru section completed, the public have been demanding additional trains between the two cities.
The Mysore Grahakara Parishat (MGP) has launched a postcard campaign pressing for additional services and more than 600 post cards have been sent to the local MP, Pratap Simha. Another 400 cards will be despatched shortly. MGP volunteers have travelled in trains between Mysuru and Bengaluru to collect signatures of commuters for the purpose.N.S. Pradeep Kumar and S. Yogendra of the parishat have said that the completion of the project has augmented the line capacity by 50 per cent and it was time for the railway authorities to introduce additional services between Mysuru and Bengaluru.
“People

of Mysuru want a train from Bengaluru to Mysuru between 5 p.m. and 5.30 p.m. to reduce the load of Chamundi Express which was running with more than 200 per cent of its passenger capacity,” said Mr. Kumar and Mr. Yogendra.
This is a long-pending demand and the MGP has submitted representations to Mysuru Division and South Western Railway headquarters at Hubballi, apart from elected representatives of the region. The issue was also raised by Sudhakar Shetty at the Divisional Railway Users Consultative Committee meeting held recently , they added.
Meanwhile, a railway official said that further to commissioning of services on the newly-laid track, the running time of the trains may be progressively reduced. The Commissioner for Railway Safety (CRS) has cleared the Naganahalli-Yeliyuru section for a maximum speed of 90 km per hour and the speed limit would be adhered to which will help reduce running time. With the Railway Budget for 2016-17 to be tabled in February, fresh proposals from the division will also be submitted to the Railway Board for consideration and additional trains may be sanctioned in view of the completion of track doubling, the official said.

There are plans to increase the speed of trains operating on Mysuru-Bengaluru section owing to likely completion of the track doubling work between the two cities.Sources in the South Western Railway SWR told UNI that almost 90 per cent of the track-laying work on the section was completed, and this had augmented the line capacity for operating more services, besides speeding up the existing trains. Some of the trains could be speeded up to reduce the running time by 20 to 25 In view of the ongoing doubling works, there are too many speed restrictions along certain stretches and there are plans to lift them so that the running time of the trains is reduced. The locomotive pilots are issued Caution Drive (CD) slips before each departure, mentioning the stretches along which, speed restrictions are to be observed. There are as many as 15 CD stretches along the Mysuru-Bengaluru section and...

some of them are as long as 500 meters, where the train speed is limited to 15 kmph or 20 kmph and it will be lifted before this year. This alone will help gain about 20 minutes, while increasing the speed will help further reduce the commuting time, said Mr Rajkumar Lal, Divisional Railway Manager. Mr Lal said, at present, some of the trains take up to three hours to cover the distance, while a few express trains take around 2 hours and 30 minutes to cover the 139-km stretch between the two cities. If speed was to be increased, then commuting between Mysuru and Bengaluru in express trains could be covered in two hours by most trains on a conservative estimate, he reasoned. The official said there are also plans to introduce additional train services on the section and a proposal had already been submitted for running a new train departing from Bengaluru at around 1915 hrs, for which, there is a high demand from the public. From Mysuru, there are demands for operating additional services between 1100 hrs and and 1400 hrs, as during that time there are insufficient outbound trains to Bengaluru. He said, now 25 pairs of trains operate between Mysuru and Bengaluru, including four weekly, three bi-weekly and one train for six days a week. Of these, 18 trains are express and seven are passenger services. The need for a second railway terminal for Mysuru stemmed from the imperatives of operating additional services from the city to the rest of the country to enhance connectivity, he added.Mr Lal said the introduction of additional trains from Mysuru also hinges on infrastructure for maintenance of rakes. The primary maintenance are carried out at the pit-lines and the Mysuru station, which has three pit-lines, was entrusted with the task of primary maintenance of seven-pair of trains, each lasting about six to eight hours, he said, adding, two of the pit -lines can accommodate rakes of 24 coaches and the third can berth a 21-coach rake.
He said, in addition, certain trains have secondary maintenance, which takes about three hours, and hence all the three pit-lines in the city station are always occupied by rakes. The primary maintenance of rakes in the Mysuru Division takes place at Mysuru and Ariskere Junction, he noted. Mr Lal said, unless additional pit-lines are created at Belagola, it will reduce the number of trains that can be operated from Mysuru. Hence, it is imperative to develop the station as the second terminal for the city, he added.UNI BSP KVV RSS 1240
