    I am Raji. Till date, I thought that samosas can be purchased only from hotels. After seeing the details given by you, I am thinking of doing it tomorrow. I will post after I do the same as how it comes.

    I would like to request you to arrange to post all these Snacks items in one file (PDF) so that we can take print out and have it as a book.

    Raji:thankyou2:

    Batata Vada and Vada Pav

    Ingredients :

    6-8 medium sized boiled potatoes

    2 cups besan

    oil for frying

    salt

    4 pav ( A kind of bun, In India it is known as Pav) - If pavs are not available, you can use any other bun

    or sandwich bread.

    To prepare Masala

    1 small piece ginger

    4-5 flakes garlic

    4-5 green chilies

    1/2 cup coriander leaves (chopped)

    For tempering

    1 tea spoon turmeric powder

    curry leaves

    1 teaspoon mustard seeds

    2 teaspoon oil

    Method :

    Grind ginger, garlic and green chilies together into a paste.

    Peel and smash potatoes with a potato masher or simply grate them.

    Add ginger, garlic and green chili paste, coriander leaves, and salt to the potatoes.

    Then take 2 teaspoons oil in a kadai. Add mustard seeds.

    When they splutter, add turmeric powder and curry leaves.

    Pour this tempering on the mashed potatoes and mix gently. .

    Make small balls of mashed potato mixture. (You can flatten the balls if you like)

    Add some salt, turmeric powder and chili powder to the gram flour.

    Add water gradually and keep mixing with a sppon or wire whisk.

    Remove lumps if any. The batter should not be too watery or too thick. If lifted by a spatula, it should

    flow in a ribbon like consistency.

    Heat some oil in a pan. To check if oil is properly heated, drop some batter in the oil.

    If the batter immediately turns soild and float on the surface of the oil, the oil is ready.

    Also make sure that the oil is not too hot. Otherwise, the vadas become dark from the outside before

    they are actually done from the inside.

    Now dip each ball/flatten pototoes in the batter, and put like 'bajji' like this, deep fry all the vadas until

    golden. Remove on a paper towel and drain.

    Batata Vadas are ready.

    For Vada Pav, split Pav keeping the base intact & spread garlic chutney or green chutney on the inner

    surfaces of it.

    Place the vada in it. Serve hot.

    Note: Instead of adding whole curry leaves, you can grind them along with the ginger-

    garlic paste to bring out their flavor.
