Hey There. How is it going ? Well we have been in and out of sickness. The official sickness season is here and can expect one or the other in the family to be sick. So currently, I can’t hear properly from one of my ears, my nose is gone on hartal and does not smell anything, my voice is more like croaking and every muscle is refusing to co-operate with me in my daily chores.
Anyways moving on today’s recipe. When I saw this recipe on my friend blogger’s news feed I immediately wanted to try it for 3 reasons. Firstly it is like a fusion of wada pav. Except the wada need not be fried here and instead it is stuffed and baked. Secondly, it is a snack in itself. You do not need anything else to go with. Okay you can have it with ketchup but that’s it. Third and most important. It is not completely maida instead it is mix of both maida and wheat buns. Good isn’t it?
So make it, bake it and enjoy it.
