Craving for hygienic Vada Pav? Then why not make it at home. Because this is the best way to finish your craving by making hygienic Vada Pav at home.

Vada Pav is very famous street food of Mumbai, India. It is often referred as the veg burger. This food is affordable for common people and loved by everyone. Vada is deep fried potato patties and pav is burger buns. Vada is placed in Pav(bun) with chutney and served with fried deseeded chilies. So in a word Vada Pav is spicy potato filling sandwiched between buns and layers of spicy garlic and green chutney.

Apart from that, I think that every one should go Mumbai at least once in their life and taste the authentic taste of all street foods. I grew up around North India and i tried street foods in North India. And I realized that, the taste of pav bhaji or vada pav could never match up to the one in Mumbai.

Anyway coming back to the point. This recipe has 4 main ingredients – the vada, the dry garlic coconut chutney, the green chutney and the sweet tamarind chutney. Tamarind chutney is optional you can skip but I recommend not to skip the garlic chutney.

Here is the recipe of making it in 1 hour at home. Try it.
