Vada pav, wada pav, or wada pao, is a vegetarian fast food dish native to the state of Maharashtra. It is the famous street food of Mumbai that is available at every corner of the street. The dish consists of a deep-fried potato dumpling placed inside a bread bun sliced almost in half through the middle along with sweet chutney, green chutney and garlic chutney.

As we know raining seasons have started and eaten fried snacks during this season is Sone Pe Suhaga. But because of the coronavirus, we are unable to go outside and have outside snacks. So, I made it at home.

Hope you all will love the recipe and after making and having Vada pav made by you at home you will forget to eat outside.
