Maharashtrian batata vada recipeWhen it comes to street food then people forget all their social barriers mainly to have piping hot foods served simply with all mesmerizing flavours.I too love street food so much but there is no assurance that the food will always be hygienically served.Not to blame all but few serve it under un-hygienic conditions and for this reason we can very well make it fresh at the comfort of our own home.When searching for some maharastrian famous snacks I found out this famous snack(recipe of batata wada)resembling more on aloo bonda or urlaikilangu bonda. recipe of batata wadaThis recipe for Batata wada/vada is a top hit street food in North with minor changes in the stuffing like adding onions we get urlakilangu bonda/Aloo bonda here in the South.I have had this bonda from local street vendors but they add lot’s of soda which is too much for our tummy health.However there is one landmark street shop at my native where they make excellent bonda’s till now.They make it as small lemon-sized bonda’s and when we start to have it we literally would have eaten countless numbers.While making the batter the consistency should be correct and should beat the batter nicely before rolling it with the stuffing.Texture is more important so don’t mash potatoes smoothly.

    You are right vani.. Street vendors do add a lot of soda. You have perfected the recipe and Wadas looks amazing.. Very inviting.

    Love love loved the Batata Wadas sweetie. The way you click your food it becomes impossible for the onlooker to resisit it. I am taking back with me the two important points of right consistency of batter and a nice texture of the potato filling. No wonder the wadas look so perfect and supremely delicious. By the way I have fallen for those pots in the background. I think you have a great collection of earthenware.
