Pav Bhaji is a Maharashtrian fast food dish that originated in Mumbai cuisine. Pav bhaji consists of bhaji (a thick potato-based curry) garnished with coriander, chopped onion, and a dash of lemon and lightly toasted pav. The pav is usually buttered on all sides.
It tastes yummyyyy, just in love with it… 🙂

While the pav bhaji is being cooked in the stove, you can take about half portion, beat it in the mixie and readd it to the mixture in the stove. It will add gravy touch with some crunchy vegetable
