Such a great recipe, tastes great, without onion, garlic and potato also. The raw banana used in this recipe, completes the whole dish.

Very interesting... and very different... usually pav bhaji consists of potatoes and in Jain recipes raw banana is used, however even though its missing from this recipe, it still tastes amazing. Light and flavorful.
