Vada Pav

When I was looking for recipes to post for Blog Hop Wednesday, I came across this recipe in Vaishali's website. Though we make potato bonda all the time, we have never tasted it as this combination of Vada Pav. I used the idea and most of the ingredients and put together this dish. We really loved it.








Dry Garlic Chutney

Ingredients
Garlic 4 pods
Coconut 1/4 cup
Salt
Little oil
Chilli powder 2 tsp


Method of Preparation

1. Heat a little oil in pan. Add the garlic and coconut and saute for a few minutes. I changed this cause I did not feel like eating raw garlic.

2. Pulse in a mixie with chilli powder and salt.

Coriander Chutney

Ingredients
Coriander Handful
Coconut 1/4 cup
Green Chillies 2
Salt

Method of Preparation

1. Pulse all the above in a mixie with a little water.



Potato stuffing

Ingredients

Potato 1 big
Peas 1/4 cup
Chilli Powder 1 tsp
Hing
Turmeric 1/2 tsp
Salt

Method of Preparation

1. Boil or Microwave the potato. Peal and mash. Transfer to a bowl.

2. Mash the peas and add it to the bowl.

3. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.

4. Split into balls and flatten them.



For the batter (outer filling)

Ingredients

Besan 1/2 cup
Rice Flour 2 tbsp
Baking Soda 1/4 tsp
Chilli Powder 1/2 tsp
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Hing
Salt

Mix all the above with a little water to make a thick batter.

To make the potato bonda

1. Heat oil in a pan. Dip the potato stuffing in the batter and put into the oil.

2. Fry it is golden brown on both sides.



To Put together.

1. Add butter to a pan and toast the pav bread on both sides

2. Set in a plate. Add garlic chutney on one side and coriander on the other.

3. Place the fried bonda on that and sandwich together.





Enjoy this spicy snack! It is now one of our favourite food. I made my sons's version without the chutneys. He also liked it a lot.
