Aptly called the poor man’s burger! Deep-fried potato patties served between laddi pav smeared with an assortment of chutneys, this serves as a meal at a meagre price of just Rs.12.
Serve with fried green chillies if you like stuff a tad spicier, and perk it up further by adding finely chopped onions along with the chutneys.
