Pav Bhaji

While shopping in one of the stores I came across pav buns. Then a thought came to my mind why not pav bhaji. Pav bhaji is one of the loved chats of our country. One of my friends prepared this dish long time back which really tasted good. So I got some help from her and also through some of the sites , tadaaaan….Pav Bhaji is ready. I did it with the vegetables which were available that time. When can use any vegetables.Mostly used are potatoes, peas, beans,capcium, cauliflower, carrots. Lets don’t waste time and learn how to make it!!!
