Vada Pav - The Famous Hunger Saver Of Mumbai

What you remember when you hear or think of Mumbai ?? Think Think !!! Leave it - Let me tell its "The Famous vada pav".
Yes , the vada pav is one of the oldest and very famous road side snack where people in mumbai till today enjoy it to the fullest. What is so much special in it  ? It is just a simple pav (Indian pav bread)  and batata vada (potato based roundal fritter), still it so famous in Mumbai . No one has the answer. The reason behind the title that the vada pav is hungry saver because people in mumbai are never left empty stomach. If they feel hungry they just love to grab one of these vada pava and cutting chai, makes them full .  Earlier around 35 years ago the price of vada pav was told to be 6 paisa. Now the price has gone from 6 paisa to Rs 15 . Till then and now the taste of vada pav has never change but its demand have been increased. Hope its chain of taste never change over coming years too.
Going on to the recipe , I thought to make vada pav with healthy Whole wheat pav . I hope you all will enjoy this superb mumbaikari snack and try out in your kitchen.
