VADA PAV RECIPE | MUMBAI VADA PAV

Vada PAv-3 Vada Pav is one among the  most popular street food in Mumbai. Though i have not been to Mumbai, i have heard from my friends about this Vada pav. Personally i am not a great fan of this Vada pav . Varun told me to make this for his evening snack one day. The reason being he got fascinated towards the name "Vada Pav" , when his friends told him. Anyway, i made this today and waiting for him to come back from school to eat his snack.  I got the recipe from my friend J, and i little bit tweaked it according to my taste.
    Though the post may be elaborate, the recipe is simple . You can make the dry red chutney in advance.  Burger buns or Pav buns can be used. I used burger buns as i don't get pav buns here.

  • Place a potato ball (deep fried potato balls) inside this.  
  • A fried green chilli can be placed near this for extra spiciness.

  • Some people spread green chutney on the top inner portion of the bun, but my friend told , not to do like that. If you want you can serve with green chutney.

Note:
  1. In the red chutney you can add 1/2 tblsp of roasted white sesame seeds while grinding.
  2. Instead of deep frying the vadas you can  cook them over the paniyaram pan, which i do generally for Koftas.
