Vada pav

Hi Friends

I have heard a lot about Vada Pav. We all know that Vada Pav is the most famous roadside snacks. The Vada is made of a spicy potato filling deep fried in a gram flour batter. Along with a hot and spicy garlic chutney, last month I got a chance to visit Mumbai. As I am a big foodie so i decided i should try each and every road side snacks of Mumbai especially Vada Pav,Misal Pav,and many more. So Once i came back to Bangalore i thought og giving it a try. So here is my version of Vada Pav. Hope you will like it,

Besan:3/4 cup

Onion:1 (Medium,finely chopped)
ginger:1 small piece (peeled & Grated)

At the time of Serving

  1. Slice each pav into half and not completely and apply spoonful each of some green and sweet chutney on the top.

  1. Place one vada in each pav and fold over pressing down gently  serve immediately.
Note: I have done one mistake that i cut these pav into 2 piece completely. But in real vada Pav the Pav are cut into half and not completely. But despite of this my attempt to make Vada Pav was successful coz my hubby likes it. i have cover this with half cut pav
