Pav Bhaji Masala Recipe
I was craving for Pav Bhaji last weekend......So went to a near by bakery just to eat this chat and unfortunately Pav bhaji was not there on that particular day the reason being Pav buns were out of stock so came back home disappointed. The next day I got pav buns(I had vada pavs in mind too as I wanted to click stepwise :)) and pav bhaji was ready at home for the next day breakfast :)

Yummy homemade pav bhaji is ready in minutes. Once ur veggies are boiled and kept ready pav bhaji can be done in a jiffy. Whenever its chat outside I go blindly with either pav bhaji or dahi puri, they are my fav anytime and in my case the craving never ends for chat atleast when it comes to pav bhaji and dahi puri.
