What's the first thing that comes into your mind when we say Mumbai street food? Well for us, it's definitely pav bhaji without a doubt. The buttered buns served with the maseldaar bhaji, onions and lemon to garnish - every single bite takes us to the streets of Mumbai and we just love it for that. But, on most days when we are craving masala pav, we seldom think of making it ourselves - we are either pressed on time or don't have enough ingredients. So, we found you a dish that is quite similar to our favourite Pav Bhaji but requires less than half the ingredients and makes for a delicious Mumbai-style snack, and it's called - Masala Pav.
Masala Pav is an easy and quick way to relish the flavours of pav bhaji minus the effort and many different ingredients. But wait, that's not it, along with being easy, this recipe is also fuss-free, all you need is one single flat bottomed pan and from cooking the masala to toasting buns, everything can be done in this pan itself. You can easily make masala pav with leftover bhaji, but making it from scratch is as exciting and easy as it can get. All you need is onions, tomatoes, capsicum, pav Bhaaji masala, and pav, that's it, just these ingredients and a melt-in-the-mouth snack is ready to be savoured. Make it for breakfast, parties, or dinner - it's going to be an instant hit everywhere. Give this easy Mumbai-style snack a try, with the recipe below.
