Vada pav

You all wont believe that I have not ever tasted vada pav till I made it myself this time and tasted. Even I had a thought that they keep Urad vada inside the pav buns and that’s the vada pav. Now I know its like south Indian potato bonda sandwiched between pav bunsWinking Then I referred Tarla dalal site, also googled and partially adapted recipe from here too. Though this may not be the authentic recipe, sure it would taste great!

  • You can deep fry the vadas too. But I like this way,no compromise in taste too.
  • I used butter rolls as pav buns for this.

  75. Hi Raji,

    Lovely yummylicious blog!!

    I love the colour and texture that you bring out in your recipes. Truly mouthwatering.

    I found it very innovative to use Panyaram plate for making Vada in your Vada Pav recipe. However, mine doesnt get fried evenly on all sides unlike your's. The vada was fried well at the bottom of panyaram and towards the rim of the panyaram kuzhi. Hence it has different coating throughout. Do you have any tips on how I can get it right?

    Many thanks!

    1. I hope cooking in medium flame through out will keep the cooking even and looks same too. Pan also matters, mine is indolium pan, non stick should work fine too.

  76. My favorite snack for a cold evening! Never knew it could be made so easily. My best thing about this recipe is frying the vada in the paniyaram pan. I used less oil and the vada came out nice and crisp :)

    Also I did not use the chutneys, but fried the pav with some oil and chilli powder. This gave a nice spicy flavor to the vada pav.

    Thanks Raks! :)

  77. omg is stunning thank u so much for recipe n thanks raks

    ReplyDelete
  78. I want to try this weekend.. just a small doubt.. How to make sure that vada will not get stuck to the paniyaram plate while turning? should i use more oil..

    ReplyDelete
  79. vadapav, is a popular spicy vegetarian fast food dish native to the Indian state of Maharashtra. It consists of a batata vada sandwiched between two slices of a pav.
