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.
