Vada Pav Bombs is a fusion version of the famous Vada Pav which is the most popular street food of Mumbai .

Vada Pav is a Maharashtrian street food , with a Indian bun , called Pav and a deep fried spicy potato fritter .  The Vada Pav is one of the cheapest streetfoods in Mumbai , just 10-12 bucks and yet makes a meal for most Mumbaites .In the fusion version of Vada Pav Bomb , I have not fried the vada , instead stuffed the pav with potato stuffing, coated the pav with batter and fried . The whole thing looks like a big bomb !

 

Well , these Vada Pav Bombs are similar to our bread pakoras , where we sandwich the bread with a stuffing and then fry the pakora . I added the chutney to the pav , so it gets a real good flavour . A few months back I was travelling to Nasik and they had a similar street food , called Pav Vada . The same concept but without the chutneys . I definitely prefer these bombs , as the chutneys give an ultimate flavour to these .

  1. Now I know what I want during our next meet stall. A pani puri stall along with vada pav one next to it. That is so addictive and I want to pick one right off the screen!
