Vada Pav

Vada Pav... is a very popular street food,my hubby is very found of this dish.He used to have this very often and he misses it a lot and keeps on telling me about it.Recently we went to an Indian Restraunt and he saw this Vada Pav in the menu and ordered it but he was disappointed with the tast,so I decided to make this and surprise him.Made it yesterday in the evening and served him after he came from office...he was surprised to see this and I got the expected expression and simle on his face for which I was waiting. Aloo vada called as Batata vada served in between Pav Buns that are spiced up with red chutney,green chutney and sweet chutney.I give the recipe here
