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?
Unfortunately its closed now!
