How To Make Chicken Vada Pav At Home:
To make chicken vada pav, we need pav, minced chicken, besan, salt, red chilli, ginger garlic paste, green chutney, curry leaves, green chilli, turmeric powder, coriander powder, hing and mustard seeds.
To start with, heat oil in a kadhai and add hing, mustard seeds, curry leaves, green chilli, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, coriander powder, salt and ginger-garlic paste. Cook for 3-4 minutes.
Now add this masala mix and salt to the minced chicken and mix. Make small roundels out of the chicken mix. Keep aside. Make a besan batter with turmeric, chilli powder, coriander powder, salt and water. Now, dip the chicken balls in the batter and fry until it turns golden brown in colour.
