Mumbai Roadside Vada Pav

Serves 4

4 to 5
Idaho potatoes boiled, peeled and mashed
cloves garlic, minced
fresh ginger root, peeled and minced
green chiles, preferabaly Serrano, finely minced
Freshly ground black pepper
6 to 8
fresh crury leaves
teaspoon black mustard seeds
cups gram flour
vegetable oil for frying
Pav buns (square buns that look like burger buns but are smaller, so you can substitute)
cup mint-cilantro chutney


Mix the gram flour with enough water (about 1 cup) and salt to taste, to make a thick, smooth paste. Keep aside.

Mix the minced ginger and garlic and add the green chillies to them. Grind into a smooth paste in the food processor.

Mix this paste with the mashed potatoes. Season with salt.

Heat 2 tbsps of oil in a pan on a medium flame and add the mustard seeds, curry leaves and tumeric powder. Fry till the seeds stop spluttering.

Add this to the potato and mix well.

Divide the potato mix into portions slighter smaller than a tennis ball. Smoothen by rolling between slightly greased palms.

Heat the oil for deep frying on a medium flame.

When the oil is hot, dip one potato ball at a time into the gram flour batter to coat well and then deep fry till golden. Drain on paper towels.

Take one Pav bun, slit in half (not completely - leave one edge joined) and put a spoonful each of Mint-Coriander Chutney. Place a potato ball on the bun and fold over, pressing down gently. Serve while the potato ball is still hot.
