Oh! Have you been missing out on vada pav because of its fat content? This low calorie version must be a dream come true, then!

Simple... Instead of frying the vadas I roasted them on a non-stick pan, and it turned out to be just as great as the fried ones, believe me!

Use whole wheat pav/bread if available. Garlic chutney adds spice and flavour to this snack.

To further cut down on the calories, I made garlic chutney without the fat-laden coconut. Just before serving warm the vada pav in an oven /Microwave to boost its scrumptiousness!

Good and tasty. However it was difficult to make the batter stick to the potato patty. Probably it should be thicker than running consistency.

Tarla Dalal    Thanks for the feedback. You can adjust the quantity of water to make a slightly thick batter. The quantity of water usually depends on the quality of the flour. Keep reviewing recipes and articles you loved.
