aloo lehsun vada recipe | Mumbai roadside batata vada | potato garlic vada | with 15 amazing images.

aloo lehsun vada is made from besan, aloo, lots of garlic and chilli powder. Here, a mixture of potatoes and garlic is coated with a besan batter and deep fried, to get a Spicy Lehsuni Vada, which tastes great when served independently or between a pair of pav buns!

I love having Mumbai roadside batata vada with sukhi lehsun chutney on the small crowded street of Mumbai leading to the train station. The Mumbai roadside batata vada is served hot on a paper plate with loads of spicy dry garlic chutney.

The strong flavour of garlic transforms the soft and soothing potato into an exciting aloo lehsun vada snack!

Notes on aloo lehsun vada 1. Add 1 tbsp hot oil. The addition of hot oil makes the besan covering crispy on frying. 2. Add ½ cup of water. Be careful while adding water, the batter should not be very runny or thick. It should be just enough to coat the aloo balls. 3. Using a whisk, mix well to make a lump-free, smooth batter. Keep aside. 4. Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan for frying the spicy vada. Maintain the temperature of oil. Very high heat browns the batata vada from outside very fast and the besan covering remains uncooked. If you let the temperature too low then they will turn greasy. 5. Dip each Mumbai roadside batata vada in the prepared batter and deep-fry a few vadas in hot oil till they turn golden brown in colour from all the sides. If you deep-fry all of them together then it will reduce the temperature of oil very quickly and will also stick to each other.

aloo lehsun vada can be served as a starter or evening snack with tea . Add to the garlicky notes by serving it with sukhi lehsuni chutney.

It is important to serve aloo lehsun vada immediately because the top layer of besan tends to become thick after some time – it must be served immediately to relish the nice crispy texture.
