Pav Bhaji is popular Indian street food recipe where Pav or Bread Buns are served with spicy mashed veggies topped with dollop of butter.
Pav Bhaji is a spicy and thick curry made with assorted veggies and seasoned with a special blend of spices is served with buns / pav shallow fried in butter. To relish a plate of piping hot pav bhaji topped with butter and paired with onion slices, lime juice, chilly and tomatoes is every food lovers dream….after all who would not love it that way??? But to get the same restaurant style lingering taste in Bhaji, you must add Homemade Pao bhaji Masala and not the one from the market. We have already given the recipe to make authentic Pao Bhaji Masala At Home.
Pav bhaji in undoubtedly one of the most popular street food of Mumbai, though now available through out the country due to it’s splendid flavors and the ease in making. Not only it makes a good weekend brunch, but it can be served as a party appetizer and also an excellent way to make kids eat seasonal veggies… as all the vegetables are nearly mashed and they won’t get to know what they are eating. Yes, you can cheat them by making them eat healthy cauliflower, carrots, tomatoes which usually they refuse.
To me, making pav bhaji at home is also a way to finish of all the leftover pieces of vegetables lying in pantry. You can also add cheese or paneer to your preference.
