Vada Pav...

Vada pav (Marathi: वड़ा पाव), sometimes spelled wada pav, is a popular vegetarian fast food dish native to the Indian state of Maharashtra. It consists of a batata vada sandwiched between 2 slices of a pav. The compound word batata vada refers in Marathi and Gujarati to a vada made out of batata, the latter referring to a potato. Pav refers to unsweetened bread or bun and may be etymologically related to the Portuguese word for bread - Pão[citation needed] (and batata is the Portuguese word for potato). Vada pav was supposedly devised by snack vendor Ashok Vaidya outside Dadar station in 1971 nd this is also known as Indian Burger..:)
