Jumbo Vada Pav

Vada Pav (also spelled Wada Pav and pronounced WUH-daahh POW) is an Indian vegetarian fast food commonly eaten in Maharashtra, India, and is one of the most popular fast-foods in Mumbai. It consists of a vada, served in a bun or roll (pav). The vada is usually potato-based. Potatoes are mashed/diced and coated with an herb-seasoned batter, then deep fried. The finished vada is then wrapped in bread and served with condiments such as chutney, red chilli powder or fried green chilli (sometimes fried and salted). A common condiment is a dry red chilli and coconut chutney.
