PAV BHAJI is a famous Indian Street food. It’s an iconic food from Maharashtra specially from Mumbai region. PAV is type of bread or bun. BHAJI means curry prepared by mixed vegetables, cooked and mashed topped with dollop of butter and garnished with coriander leaves. This can be enjoyed all around the year but in winters it’s more tastier with the availability of colourful veggies. I love to cook it often in winters.
