I am a big big fan of Batata vada  and as soon as I saw these on Laxmi’s blog I knew it had to be these vadas fot this Blog Hop Wednesday,which is so popular by now ..and we need to thank Radhika for this.
I made the vadas following her recipe ..just a few changes here and there..but I added the pav to it,so this could be a complete evening snack.Vada Pav is a famous Mumbai roadside snack..cheap and delicious..make it spicy and eat them with fried green chillies..and that awsum red chilly garlic chutney…n how can I miss that fresh coriander chutney!!..but here in Gujrat the vada pav ‘s defination is much more richer and heavier…the pav is generouly sauted in butter ..both top and bottom…. inside and outside!!..really..and then the garlic chutney is put on one side …green on the other and then this is sandwiched with a real spicy vada.
