Batata Vada – Super Snack & Key to a Great Vada Pav
Sumit Malhotra

Batata Vada Recipe – Batata Vada is the Key to a Great Vada Pav

So, a good Vada Pav is not possible with a good batata vada. And, my forever request to my friend Dipak whenever I visit Mumbai is to meet me at the airport with a double Vada Pav. And Dipak know where they make good batata vada and hence great vada pav. Batata vada is a popular street food in Maharashtra and is widely available at all nook and corners. “Batata” incidentally means potato in Portuguese who introduced potatoes in India.

In case you want to go easy on the carbs, batata vada goes equally well with some spicy mint & coriander chutney as well as tamarind chutney. Choose your pick or use both of them. My son Sidhant is a big fan of vada pavs and that’s what is being made for lunch today. Here is a simple recipe for making batata vadas that will contribute to a great vada pav for you. Eat it as a snack or lunch on it, it is your call entirely.

Some variations for making batata vada

Please feel free to modify this recipe as per your taste. This recipe doesn’t use many other ingredients that can be used to make it more flavourful because I like to keep such snacks less spicy so that kids can enjoy them as well. You can add hing to this mix for an additional twang. You can add finely chopped green chillies, onions as well as garlic. I have avoided all three. You can add pepper or even more red chilli powder for additional heat. Even fresh green peas may be added if you wish more vegetables for your children. you may want to mash them though.

Batata vada works very well with a hot cup of tea and especially when it is raining or as a winter evening snack. If you make it, let me know how you fared. Do also check my Bombay Sandwich Recipe which is also quite popular with people in Mumbai.
