Recipe Notes
  • While cooking potato vada, make sure do not cut potato with knife, break them roughly with hands or with spatula in wok only.
  • While making besan coating, the paste must be slighter thicker side.
  • Coat the vada nicely in besan before deep frying them.
  • Cook pav only when you are ready to serve, otherwise they will be hard if you keep them longer after cooking.
  • Do not slice the pav with knife, break them with your fingers. By doing this, flavour of chutney is nicely absorbed by pav. 
  • Be very careful while frying green chili, as they cracker a lot while deep frying.
  • You may adjust chili and salt as per your taste and tolerance.
  • You may keep all ingredients ready like potato vada, chutneys and green chili. And assemble them when you are ready to serve.
