well, i am a huge fan of street food recipe and i guess you can easily figure it out with my number of post in the street food category. i particularly like the chatapata snack which would burst into flavour when it touches the saliva. the spicy kat vada or usal vada is one such recipe which is known for its spicy sauce. i personally like the usal gravy and i serve it with most of my meals. the combination of dry spices, onions and dry coconut which is used in the gravy, gives it a perfect touch. as a matter of fact, the same gravy is used for misal pav and also for most of the kolhapuri based rassa dish. moreover, the same gravy base is used for many meat-based dishes and hence it is made more spicy and hot.
