My weekend was different than always, because this weekend I did not bake anything not cake,cupcake or pizza or bread.It was very traditional and typical Vada Pav
Day.I have never thought that I could make it at home, because as usual we go out to eat Vada just like pani puri.
I have started my new job and did not get much time to execute my lazy cooking in very hectic days.So this weekend we did not go out and just made lots of Vada Pav. Surprisingly my kids also enjoyed this, because I keep telling them ,this is new kind of burger ;-)With Pada Pav,some hot and spicy chutney should be there.So, I have made Dry Garlic Chutney
and sprinkled on Vadas.
Vada Pav is very popular and staple Mumbai street food.We also call it as Desi Burger.It is such a food that, we may say as a snack or some people live only on Vada Pav in Mumbai. It used to be “poor man’s food”.
It is favorite of everyone right from a child to old people.Eating this with cup of special Ginger Tea in Monsoon days, is like a treat.We can make Pav at home also, but in India we can get Pav very easily in any bakery shops.I have eat jumbo size Vada.It is quick snacks outside of colleges,schools,offices,stations and many more.
I have seen chain restaurants of this Maharashtrian Snack , ‘Goli‘ , just like McDonalds. I feel very proud that our people also started modernized food chains with traditional food items. Vadas are deep fried potato savory and pav means bread or buns. It is served with two kind of chutney, dry red chutney and fried chilies.
I have many memories of Vada Pav
, mostly during Travelling.We can find this in any city or town, take a break during travel and grab one Vada with a cup of Ginger Tea
.It will satisfy your hunger for long time.
