Vada Pav

I had a couple of friends with their family visiting us last weekend, so had to think of the menu much ahead. I wanted to make something different but not time consuming. By public demand from my family, ended up preparing 'Vada Pav' which was an instant success. It was real fun having hot Vada pav on a cold evening. Sharing the recipe with you all to enjoy.

Boiled Potatoes - 4
Ginger garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
Ginger paste - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
Green chillies(finely chopped) - 1/2 tsp
Cilantro(Finely chopped)
Green chilly paste
Samosa chutney
For the batter:
Besan (Gram flour) - 2 cups
Red chilly powder - 1/4 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp

Put 3 tsp of oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When it splutters, add ginger garlic paste and ginger paste. Keep stirring till it is done and releases flavour. Add turmeric powder, chopped green chillies, chopped cilantro, mashed potatoes and salt. Mix well and keep aside. Once it is cooled, make into small balls and keep aside.

Mix the batter ingredients with water so that it forms a batter of considerable thick consistency so that the potato balls are coated thick.

Heat oil and keep dipping the potato balls in the thick batter and deep fry in medium heat till all the sides are done. Remove and keep it paper towel to take away the excess oil.

Butter the pav (bread) on both the sides generously and gently toast in a hot tava till it turns golden brown. Apply green chilly paste on one side of the pav and samosa chutney on the other side. The vada pav is complete when you place the vada in between the pav. Here is the yummy 'Vada pav' ready 'Garam garam'.
