The all-time favourite combination of soft, succulent pav buns and yummy potatoes, which features in many Mumbai roadside snacks like Pav Bhaji and Vada Pav comes together in an easier and more handy form in this dish. Here, potato slices are dipped in a besan batter and deep-fried into bhajias, which are then sandwiched between pav buns along with a drizzling of tongue-tickling chutneys. You can keep the sauces ready, but deep-fry the potatoes just before preparing the Bhajji Pav, because the crispness of the bhajias and the tang of the chutneys are the secrets behind the success of this Mumbai-wali treat.

These roadside stalls selling these are soo much in demand, they are made and served in front of you and these stalls are always crowded asking mostly for bhajji pav, I tried this at home and it was really really very good in taste. Waiting for big monsoon to hit Mumbai again and will try it again...
