About Chicken Vada Pav Recipe

Chicken Vada Pav is an iconic Indian street food that originated in Maharashtra. It used to be a rather addictive and pocket-friendly snack offered at tea time. Today, people have come up with a couple of iconic recipes that make this dish even more enjoyable.

You can also use a couple of lettuce leaves and the filling can be a combination of mashed potato and minced chicken. It will be even more unique.

Even though Vada Pav is vital, the ingredient which makes the difference is the Garlic Peanut chutney that is applied to the Pav.
All you need to do is – grind all the components with chili powder and salt, and that’s it. If you want it hot, it’s also possible to use a pinch of black pepper and a few red pepper flakes.

During my time in Mumbai, a few years back, I remember that one of my goals was to consume a Vada Pav, which was nearly synonymous with the city. It’s a popular street food which everybody enjoys, with its own hot potato filling wedged between a thick coating of hot chicken and a crispy, chewy, spicy curry filling. With it’s sweet and hot taste, it’s almost just like a combo of two different foods. I truly felt like I needed to go to Mumbai to find the true taste of this delicacy. But when I got the real deal, I realized it had been so much more than what I had imagined and I am so glad I did.
