Batata Vada: As already mentioned, vada pav consists of a spicy and flavorsome deep fried vada. Batata means potatoes, and therefore this deep-fried snack prepared with the filling of potatoes is called the batata vada.

Vada Pav Chutney: Dry chutney prepared with garlic, red chilies, etc is the vada pav chutney. It adds much heat to vada pav. Since it is a dry chutney, it can easily be prepared in advance and in bulk and can be stored in the refrigerator. Doing so, make the preparation of vada pav a fuss-free affair.

Pav: City where I live, we get special pavs to make vada pav. The pavs for vada pav are bigger. I prefer those over the regular pavs. Further, you can also make pav at home.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
