How to Make Mouth Watering Pav-Bhaji

This famous fast food, Pav- Bhaji is an amalgamation of all different types of healthy vegetables, which you may don’t prefer to eat individually like Zucchini, carrots, purple cabbage which all are the most nutritious food we know.

I was totally a novice at cooking pav-bhaji, but due to my daughter’s temptation of this dish, I had to learn from one of my Marathi friends. Now cooking pav-bhaji is quite easy for me. It has many variations, like savtik pav-bhaji, Kala pav-bhaji, paneer pav-bhaji, but basic things are the same, in paneer pav-bhaji, you add grated paneer or mushroom in mushroom pav-bhaji. Like that without the use of onion and garlic, make savtik pav-bhaji. The best way to serve it is with roasted pav or dinner rolls with butter, chopped onion, and coriander. Don’t forget to garnish the Bhaji with loads of butter on top!
