bhaji. Have you?
Pav is a square bun and bhaji is a mixed vegetable curry in tomato gravy which has a special spice mix - 'pav bhaji masala' added to it. It is served with chopped onions sprinkled with fresh coriander (cilantro) leaves and a lemon wedge. It looks colorful and tastes great too.
Pav bhaji has it's origin in Mumbai, in the western state of Maharashtra.
It is popular as a Indian street food. It is available at most of the street vendors who sell chat items.
It can be made at home too as it is a simple and easy recipe. You can make it as a wholesome evening meal or a snack.
