Vada Pav

Well another left over blessing in disguise 🙂

I made aalu paratha the other day and had some filling left. As a practice, we try to keep pav at home to quench the pav bhaji craving of the pati.

You shall need:

2…medium size potatoes [Boiled and mashed]

1.. green chilly [finely chopped]

1…small onion [finely chopped]

1/4 tsp…turmeric powder

1/2 tsp… Salt

scant pinch of red chilly powder

1/4 tsp… jeera powder

1/2 tsp… Chaat masala

Corriander [Optional]

For the batter-

1/2 cup… Besan/gram flour


A pinch of salt and turmeric

1 tbsp… Warm oil [you may take from the oil that you are using for frying the vadas]

Oil to seep fry

To serve-


Fried green chillies

Chutneys of your choice


  • Mix all the ingredients of the filling together.
  • Taste to adjust the seasoning.
  • Make about 6-8 balls of the same and keep aside
  • Meanwhile heat oil in a wok for deep frying.
  • Mix the batter ingredients except the water.
  • Add 1 tbsp of water at a time and make a thick-ish paste
  • Roll the filling balls in the batter and deep fry.

  • make sure they brown equally on all sides.
  • Remove with a slotted spoon on a kitchen towel.
  • To serve, cut the pav and put chutneys/lehsun powder chutney.
  • Now slightly flattern the vada and put in the pav.
  • Serve with fried green chillies and serve warm.
