Pav Bhaji Mumbai Style

Pav Bhaji is a Maharashtrian fast food dish that originated in Mumbai. This dish was originally created by a vendor for the mill workers who had very little time to have their lunch. Pav in Marathi means a small loaf of bread and Bhaji means a vegetable dish. I am very lucky to have a Maharashtrian friend who made this bhaji for a get together. I fell in so much love with it, the first thing I did was to get the recipe from her and tried it and the bhaji came out fabulous.

It is a healthy one pot meal, which nobody should miss. Here’s the Mumbai style bhaji with step by step photos…

So why do you have to wait, just enjoy…
