This is enjoyed by all from “Rags to riches”. You will find Vada pav being sold in almost each food joint / restaurant and tastes fabulous. I got the taste of it for the first time when I went to Switzerland and on the foothill of Mt. Titlis there is this guy who sells Vada Pav with tea.

Since then I have tried making vada pav and what am sharing is my take on this. Continue reading for “vada pav recipe shown with step by step photos”. This vada is also known as Aloo Bonda or Aloo Gunda in central part of India (Madhya Pradesh & Chhattisgarh).
