From outside, it looks like a bread roll, but when you bite into it, it is a vada pav. That makes this lovely dish appeal to both camps the sandwich lovers and the vada pav fans! Bread dough is layered with garlic chutney and stuffed with a peppy potato mixture before being baked to a perfectly golden colour, which makes it look and smell irresistible. A brushing of butter is the final master stroke, which makes it impossible to wait for your turn to grab a Baked Vada Pav! If you are not going to have this immediately after baking, allow it to cool completely and store it in an airtight container. Warm it in the Oven for five minutes just before serving.
