Ingredients for Vada:

Potatoes - 3 medium sized

Curry leaves – 10

Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp

Garlic cloves – 5

Ginger – 1 inch piece

Green Chillies – 5

Asafoetida – 1/4 tsp

Turmeric - 1/4 tsp

Oil – 1 tbsp

Ingredients for vada crust:

Chickpea flour - 1 1/2 cup

Chilli Powder – 1/2 tsp

Salt – 1/4 tsp

Turmeric – a pinch

Ingredients for Green Chutney:

Coriander leaves – 2 bunch

Mint leaves – 1 bunch

Green Chillies – 2

Lemon Juice – 1 tsp

Garlic cloves – 5

Salt – 1/2 tsp

Turmeric – 1/4 tsp

Preparation:

Pressure cook potatoes and mash them.  Meanwhile finely chop green chillies, ginger, garlic and curry leaves.  Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds.  Once it starts to splutter, add chopped ingredients and saute them for two minutes.  Add turmeric powder, asafoetida and saute it for a minute.  Add mashed potatoes, salt and mix it well.  Allow it to cook for a couple of minutes and switch the stove off.  Let it cool down.

Meanwhile grind all the ingredients for green chutney and keep it aside.  If needed, add a tbsp of water to it.  Coconut chutney can also be used here.

Take another vessel and mix chickpea flour, salt, chilli powder and turmeric together.  Add water to make it into a batter consistency.

Apply oil to your palm and take small portions from the cooked potato curry and make it into balls.  I prefer to press these balls and make them into patties.  Now heat oil in a pan for deep frying.  Dip these balls/patties into the chickpea batter and drop it into the oil.  Fry these till they turn into golden brown color.

Vada

Now take a pav and slice it horizantally and smear the inner portions with green chutney.  Place a vada ball/patty betwen the sliced pav and serve it hot with chopped onions and fried green chillies.
