Vada Pav

Vada pav, a popular street food in Mumbai, is much similar to American burger in which a spicy potato dumpling is kept inside the pav bread. Anyone traveling to Mumbai does not return home before relishing the delicious street foods like vada pav, pav bhaji, etc. It is so fascinating to find people from every walk of life whether a celebrity or a taxi driver dropping in to such eateries to savor these tantalizingly delicious goodies.

Garlic chutney : Roast all the ingredients in oil and grind into a coarse powder (if you like this as dry powder, you can reduce garlic so that it will have less moisture).

How to assemble vada pav: First we need to cut open the pav bread horizontally (but not split into two), then smear garlic chutney on the one half and green chutney on the other half and place vada between those slices. Serve vada pav with tomato sauce, or green chutney and garnish with onion rings & fried green chilli.
