Here’s the cheese lover’s version of the ever-popular vada pav. The cheesy surprise at the core of the spicy potato vada and the use of mayonnaise along with the chutney make this recipe quite different from the classic vada pav.

Make sure you assemble the Cheese Stuffed Vada Pav as soon as you deep fry the vadas, to enjoy the best flavour and cheesy mouth-feel.

The crunch of the hot vada and the spiciness of the chutneys make this an ideal snack for the rainy season.
