Craving for vada pav
and wanting it to be ultra hygienic? There is no better way than making batata vada pav
at home as it is definitely hygienic and the ingredients used are also fresh. The procedure to make Mumbai style vada pav
is not at all complex but very simple. First, we have started with making the potato filling by pounding the green chillies, ginger and garlic using a mortar and pestle. Further, heat the oil and add the mustard seeds. When they crackle, add the asafoetida and curry leaves. Add the pounded mixture which will give a unique flavor to our vada pav
. Add the potatoes, turmeric powder for the colour and salt and mix well. Remove from the fire and let it cool. Divide and shape into rounds balls and keep aside. Further to cover them, we have made a thick batter using besan, turmeric powder, baking soda and little salt. Next, dip the potato balls in the batter and deep fry until golden brown. Next, to assemble vada pav
, take a ladi pav
and slit it from the centre, but do not cut fully. These days whole wheat laadi pav
are also available in many bakery stores.. If you wish you can make them at home, check out our recipe for whole wheat laadi pav. Next, Spread some sukhi leshun ki chutney on the bottom half of the laadi pav. Place the vada over it and tradional style vada pav
is ready. We have also shown the process to assemble Mumbai style vada pav
, first spread some meetha chutney on a slit pav. Then spread some teekha chutney over it. Finally spread some sukhi leshun ki chutney over it. Place the vada and press the pav and the Mumbaiya style vada pav
is ready to serve. Serve immediately while the vadas are still hot. You can also serve along with some fried green chillies.
These days there are many ways to make and serve the vada pav
. Some vada pavs
are made with an array of chutneys and some of the vada pavs
are made with chutneys, topped with onions, mayonnaise and cheese while some vada pavs
are served with the besan chura made from left over besan batter along with chutneys.
Succulent and spicy potato vadas are sandwiched between fresh pav bread along with dry garlic chutney, to make a delicious snack that tickles the taste buds and satisfies the tummy. I have fond memories of sharing a vada pav
with my son while travelling on a business trip to Vapi by train.
Although vada pav
is a Maharashtrian
dish, I was surprised to find it popular even in Gujarat. Another travelling ritual on my frequent drives to Pune is to stop at a small café on the highway to grab a quick vada pav
and a steaming hot cup of Masala Tea
that chases away all my travel fatigue.
