‘Khada’ mean whole and not mashed, which explains the difference between this and the regular pav bhaji. Although it has the same tongue-tickling and invigorating taste, the veggies are not mashed to a pulp in this variant.
This gives a different consistency and mouth-feel to the dish, while also letting you enjoy the singular taste of each veggie that goes into the bhaji.
While making this, make sure you just lightly mash the cooked veggies once or twice and not much, because then you will not get the authentic taste and texture.
Make sure you heat the khada bhaji well before serving it with buttered and roasted pavs.
