Vada Pav


  • 1 packet pav bread (Easily available in the market)
  • For the Vada filling:
  • 3 - 4 boiled and mashed potatoes
  • 2 green chillies chopped
  • 2 - 3 grated garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds (rai/sarson)
  • A pinch of asafoetida (hing)
  • 6 to 8 curry leaves (kadi patta)
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder (haldi)
  • 1 tbsp oil + Oil for deep frying
  • For the outer covering:
  • 3/4 cup besan (gram flour)
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder (haldi)
  • A pinch of baking soda
  • salt to taste


  1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds. When they crackle, add the asafoetida and curry leaves and saute for a few seconds.
  2. Add in the grated garlic and chopped green chillies, saute for a few seconds.
  3. Add the potatoes, turmeric powder and salt and mix well. Keep aside to cool.
  4. Meanwhile, lets make the batter by combining besan, haldi, baking soda and little water (almost 1/3 cup).
  5. When the potato mixture has cooled, make equal sized 8 tikkis.
  6. Heat oil in a deep frying pan. When it is ready, dip each tikki in the batter and then slowly slide in the hot oil.
  7. Deep fry all 8 tikkis in hot oil, till golden brown. Drain on absorbent paper and keep aside.
  8. Slice each pav into half and place one vada in each pav and serve immediately.
  9. I also kept some lemon and green chilli while serving
