Batata Vadas with yummmy coriander chutney
Sorry guys since this party was arranged at a short notice couldnt arrange for any drinks to go alongwith it ;)
Heres the receipe for Vada Pav :
1. Boil Potatoes and then mash them
2. Time to add the masala : Add salt, green chillies and ginger paste, turmeric, little amount of sugar, few drops of lemon juice
3. Now time for the tempering : Take little amt of oil in the small katori used for tadka...once the oil heats up add hing, urad dal and curry leaves and add this tadka to the mashed potatoes
4. Now mix all the masala into the mashed potatoes and make small round balls
5. Take besan in a vessel and add salt and water. Keep the consistency medium..not too thick, neither too thin
6. Now dip the batata vadas into this besan batter and fry thm.
7. Take Ladi pav and cut it into half at the centre till abt more than 3/4. Dont cut the entire pav into half...let it be joint at one end.
8. Apply a nice layer of butter on both sides of the pav. Top it with coriander chutney and then dry lasoon chutney
9. Now place 1 vada on one side of the pav and close the other side...tada...vada pav is ready!!!
P.S You can also fry the left over batter by just sprinkling it in the oil...it tastes yummmmm...dont know if I am making sense!!!
N how can I end this post without mentioning some of the best Vada Pav joints in Bombay!!!
