From outside, it looks like a bread roll, but when you bite into it, it is a vada pav. That makes this lovely dish appeal to both camps – the sandwich lovers and the vada pav fans! Bread dough is layered with garlic chutney and stuffed with a peppy potato mixture before being baked to a perfectly golden colour, which makes it look and smell irresistible. A brushing of butter is the final master stroke, which makes it impossible to wait for your turn to grab a Baked Vada Pav!
