Samosa Pav is like a brother of Vada Pav. They belong to the same family as they are made in the same manner. Samosas are deep fried with a spicy potato and peas filling between laadi pav flavored with chutneys.
This delicious street food is a popular favorite of Mumbai. Beautifully mashed, spiced potatoes and veggies loaded with melted butter and soft buttered buns are a match made in heaven.
