Vada Pav

Vada Pav. This is very popular roadside snack in bombay (mumbai),Maharastra. It is referred to as Bombay Burger. When i was in mumbai few years back. I was so impressed with this snack (Aloo bonda in a bun). Almost every evening myself and my husband used to eat chaats includes vada pav outside. Later when we moved to UK and then to US i started to do it at home. But one thing is that the taste is different from the road side eateries (junk food stalls) :-). Not sure why... But it is still very tasty to eat as a snack.







Batata Vada (Aloo Bonda) (click here for the recipe).
Pav / Bread rolls ( available in the grocery store )
for Sprinkling
Green chilli chutney & Chutney Powder
Method
  1. Heat griddle / tawa grease the butter & shallow fry the pav on the both sides. Remove & keep aside
  2. grease the green chilli chutney on the other side. Aagain another side grease chutney powder. In between the pav, place the vada.
