Batata Vada - A delicacy specially in Mumbai

serves : 4 to 5

Ingredients for Vada

Boiled potatoes 4 to 5
A bunch of curry leaves ( kadipatta)
green chillis 5 to 6 (depending on how spicy you want)
mustard (rai)
coriander leaves a generous amount
asafoetida (hing)
oil for frying as well as for the bhaji

Gram flour
red chilli powder

Method: Mash the boiled potatoes and keep aside. take green chillies and grind them in a mixie once its done add the ginger, garlic & curry leaves to it and grind along with the green chillis, but do not grind much just a little till you see some particles of it (it shouldnt be a paste). Then take some oil once hot add mustard then once the mustard starts sprinkling add asafoetida (hing), and then the ginger garlic mixture fry it nicely until it looses the raw smell and turns the color a bit, add turmeric, salt and then add the boiled & mashed potatos and mix it nicely. Keep on the gas for some time and lastly add the coriander leaves and mix properly. remove from gas take some oil on ur palms and make vadas of it.

For batter
Take gram flour add salt, turmeric,red chilli powder & water to it & make a batter like we make for frying bhajiyaz. On the other side heat oil in a kadhai (oil shouldn't be less or else the vada's soak more oil). Dip the vadas in the batter and leave in oil onnce the oil is nicely heated lower the flame as the high flame will burn the cover. You can enjoy these with garlic &  dry coconut chutney which i will post soon or if kids like also with tomato ketchup.

I hope this recepi will be liked by all this is my version of making it, there are many ways of making a batata vada as its very famous in bombay known as the best street food, for a matter of fact there are many people who still survive on a vada pao in mumbai till date.
