Vada pav is loved by millions across the country, especially in Mumbai. This Maharashtrian snack is basically a deep-fried aloo bonda or vada sandwiched between buttered pav buns. Sprinkle some masala, green chutney, and green chilli, and a delectable indulgence is ready in no time. Almost every Mumbaikar loves to gorge on this street food. And cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar is no different. He has shared an Instagram post that featured him posing with a platter of vada pav. A quick glance at his plate, and we could spot a total of 7 vada pavs, topped with a fried green chilli each. Sachin Tendulkar chose to add a clever pun to the vada pav binge that he enjoyed. “Carb'e Diem,” the veteran captioned the post.
Former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh has approved Sachin Tendulkar's foodie shenanigans. “Paji,” he wrote, with both hands up emoji.
