Mumbaiiya Vada Paav

They call it a crowd i call it a party, They call em brats i call them brothers. They call them drunk i call them happy. They call it bad i call it bliss. They call it traffic i call it a festival. They call it dirty i call it dressed. They call it a sinner i call it a saint. They call it MUMBAI i call it home.. ♥

This had been one of my favourite FB status which was floating around, I had planned to put it across on my page too; but then what recipe would represent this Mumbaiyya flavour ??

Too many dishes give the spirit of Ma city, like Pav bhaji , Street Chaat, Burji Paav, Pani Puri,  etc. But the first one that comes up is always – Vada Paav ! You can have this anywhere – anytime – anyhow , on the streets – @ the beach – the railway station – the playground – school canteen-theatre, you name it you will get them. 

Frankly, if you are from Mumbai you would never prepare this @ home, but if you really want to, this dish is as simple as it seems.

You Need the Batata Vadas, that you have already prepared, Small Paav (Type of bread specially found in this part of country) and some Green Chutney.


  1. Slice the Paav IMG_0245
  2. Apply the Chutney IMG_0246
  3. Sandwich the Batata Vada within the PaavIMG_0247

And have it garama garam Chai !
