Meaning of Pav in Vada Pav

Whenever we hear the word "VadaPav". We assume that VadaPav must be a Marathi word as it sounds like Marathi. Vada means that circular shaped Fried mashed potato with besan Coating and Pav means bread. Pav looks like a Marathi name for Bread but i think in actual it came from the Portuguese word PAO which means Bread.
As the Portuguese ruled over Goa for a long time. This word mush have come from them and had mixed in our culture and lifestyle.

  Many thanks to Google for this great translator.
