Batata vada is another gujarati dish that has broken all geographical and cultural barriers to become world-famous! nothing but crisp potato fritters encased in a gram flour batter, these are enjoyed occasionally by all… while some even go a step ahead and make it a part of their weekly or even daily routine!

I loveee Batata Vada. I followed this recipe exact and the results was just perfect. The ginger paste gives a very subtle flavour to the vadas. These vadas taste very similar to what you get roadside. It is also not very time consuming if you have boiled potatoes ready.
