Vada Pav

A yummy wonderful and famous mouth watering street food of Mumbai... I still remember my college days... We used to bunk lectures and then go to the canteen for eating vada pav, samosa, kachori etc... Really college days are so nice no tensions... Just enjoy... Now whenever I back to India its for sure that we eat a lot of vada pav's, samosaa kachoris all street food :)... Even during my preganancy when my mom said eat whatever u want now later once baby is born there will be lot of restrictions... I eat a samosa, vada, vada pav, kachori, dabeli, chaat etc every day... :).. We do get these here in Singapore now a days... but the taste.. ofcourse a lot of difference... When I started sending my entries for SWC Maharashtra this was the first recipe i wanted to send... but did not get time to prepare.. now my craving for vada pav increased so much that could not wait any longer... and also the last date for entry was nearing... So this Vada Pav for SWC Maharashtra....
