Batata Vada Recipe
Batata Vada Mumbai Style is a spicy potato based snack that goes as a patty for Vada Pav. Its spicy and delicious snack that can be had by itself along with green chutney, sweet chutney or tomato ketchup. Vada pav is like out Indian version of Veg burger. I first tried this snack during my college days at the chaat shop. They are quite filling and yummy at the same time. Its such a easy to put together and can be made so easily for an evening snack with ingredients from your pantry. I love how the spiciness from the vada goes well with the sweet tangy and hot chutney base. Do give it a try and you will love it. Batata Vada is similar to our aloo bonda or potato bonda in South India

      Let it cool down peel the skin and mash until the lumps are gone. Set aside.

      2. In a pan heat oil, crackle the mustard seeds and cook the green chilli paste for a 

      minute until the raw smell goes away. Add in the turmeric, salt and the mashed #    
      potato. Mix well until well cooked, check for salt, add lemon juice and let this cool 
      down completely.

      and set aside on a plate. Heat the oil for frying, mix the batter - gram flour, salt, 
      red chilli, hing, chaat masala, baking soda, water ( as required) similar to dosa 
      batter thickness and set aside.

      4. Now dip the potato balls into the gram flour mix and fry in oil. Let all the sides of 

      the vada get cooked well, Using a slotted spoon remove from oil and place on a 
      kitchen tissue to drain excess oil. 

      5. Serve as vadas along with green chutney or sweet chutney or ketchup. Or keep 

      them aside to make vada pav ;-)


      Cooks Wisdom

      Tip 1
  1. Make sure that the potato stuffing is completely dry and has less moisture. Do not add water while making the stuffing.     
      Tip 2

      2. Make sure the oil is in medium to high flame for the vadas to be evenly cooked.
