Vada pav (Wada Pav), is a popular snack famous in Maharashtra, India. It consists of a batata vada (also called Aloo Bonda in South India) sandwiched between two slices of a pav.

Pav bread in this case is NOT sweet as it is basically a spicy and non-sweet snack. I am a north Indian and when I first had it on one of Mumbai's street stall, I just had this feeling that I might not be able to eat the uncooked Pav. But, believe me, you would never feel that the Pav is uncooked when you eat it with a Chutney/Sauce and the Vada (The aloo pakora).

It is a very easy dish which can be made within 15 minutes. It has three main ingredients i.e. Pav, A Chutney and Aloo Vada (Or Aloo Bonda). We are serving it with garlic coconut chutney but you can also eat it with Green Coriander Chutney/Sauce.
