The first thing I ate in Mumbai was a vada pav, and it shall be the last thing I eat until I return! Packed with flavor, puffy and slightly crispy on the outside… Doused with chutneys and stuffed into a soft bun. Oh, vada pav, my favorite Indian street food. You will be missed…

Then they are bitten into and eaten with enormous appetite. Then they are stuffed into a bun moistened with a spicy chili chutney. After less than three minutes the vada pav are strained from the oil. Tossed into frying oil after dipping in chana batter.

The most common street food in Mumbai! The legendary vada pav.

Mahsed potatoes with cilantro and curry leaves, turmeric, ginger, cumin, coriander, and mustard seeds are formed into balls. Dipped in chana (chickpea) batter and tossed into vegetable oil. 

They’re then served with a spicy green chili chutney in a surprisingly flavorful roll! 

Eat where lines are formed at rush hour!
