Sangam Vada

This vada tastes just awesome as the popular street food served as vada pav. What is different is the way it is served. You can call this reverse vada pav or ulta vada pav. The potato mixture is stuffed in the pav, then dipped in gram flour batter and deep-fried. And then served like a chaat sprinkled with the chutneys, chopped onion and nylon sev.
