Stuffed with a delicious Aloo Bonda , Vada pav is one elaborate recipe, which consumes lot of time to Cook. But it tastes fabulous. I cooked this recipe for Breakfast. This recipe is a fantastic Snack choice too. An easy to cook recipe which is a popular street food of Mumbai.

It was 2013, we visited Mumbai for the first time. After a tumultuous 36 hour Train ride we were craving for some food when we took off at Lokmanya Tilak station. We had no food by then. And the platform was a barren land because it was wee hours of morning.

We strode out from the platform. A small shack caught our eyes, only living person who was seen cooking something. We surrounded him in no minutes. We saw him, stuffing bread with some pakore. As per our order, he served us warm potato vada loaded buns which we devoured in minutes. Smeared with an aromatic Chutney, and a crunchy bada in the middle, it was the best Breakfast of my life till date.

So, finally after growing up, I tried my hand in cooking this superstar Street food which is hero of many heart.

  1. Thanks. I will also try this. I usually make pao-bhaji when I have some leftover sabji in fridge with potatoes in it. Mashing it in a karahi with hot oil, some more boiled potatoes, onions, garlic, tomatoes, and pav-bhaji masala transforms the whole thing into a heavenly dish that disappears in minutes.
