You wouldn’t come across anyone in Mumbai who must not have eaten vada Pav……..
This would be my first recipe which is given to me by my buddy. Buddy’s name is Sumeet and recipe is given by his wife Deepa. Not that I don’t know how to make Mumbai vada pav. But this vada pav has a different version. I am thankful to Deepa Agrawal for sharing this recipe with me. Though I have made a slight modification to this Mumbai Vada Pav. Just added hing and loads of coriander leaves.
Vada Pav’s main ingredients are Potatoes and Gram flour. There are many variations to make this yummy Vada Pav’s. Today I am sharing a different version of Vada Pav. I just loved the taste of this Mumbai Vada Pav. Today evening I just thought of making Vada Pav. The spice of chilies and hot vadas gave me a sweat…….it was spicy and tasty…..yummy. I ate 3 vadas which is unbelievable that too with 4 chilies….. Gosh!
How to make Vada Pav Recipe:
1. Keep all ingredients handy.
2. Take boiled potatoes. Chop them into medium size.
3. For Green Paste: Combine curry leaves, Chopped Ginger, Garlic Cloves, Green Chilies. You could pestle it with a mortar using your strength. Otherwise grind them coarsely in grinder with 2tbsp water. Please don’t make this paste too thin.
4. For Tadka: Take 2 tbsp Oil in a small pan. Once the oil is hot add mustard. When the mustard crackles add Asofoetida, Urad dal. Remove from fire.
5. Combine tadka, green paste, 1/2 cup coriander leaves, chat masala along with salt and lime juice in the chopped Potatoes. Mix evenly with your fingertips.
6. Form small balls out of it. You could from 7 to 8 balls easily. If the potato mixture is sticking to your finger. Rub some oil to your finger. Once all small balls are formed. keep it aside.
7. Take a Wok or vessel. Add Gram Flour and water to form a paste.
8. Ensure the paste is thick, not thin. Add salt and rest 1/2 cup coriander leaves to it.
9. Get a big pan for frying. Pour oil for deep frying. Once the oil is hot. Dip Potato balls into gram flour batter. Gently place them in the oil with your finger or spatula. Ensure you fry these Vada on low flame. Else it might burn. Once they become nice golden brown and crisp. Your vada is ready. I don’t have a pic of this step.
10. Dab some tissue paper on it to remove excess Oil.
11. Fry the rest of vadas and serve on a platter with Fried Green chili. Take pav slice them into 2 halves. Rub some chutney or sauce on the pav. Place this hot vada between the pav. Serve Mumbai vada pavs hot with chutney or Sauce. These Mumbai Vada Pav-Indian Burger Recipe are perfect with a cup of tea in the evening.
