Pav bhaji is more than a mere snack! it’s a quick meal that can be grabbed on the go – since large potions of the bhaji are made in advance and simply reheated with a few spices before serving. You just need to wait till the pav is toasted to perfection with oodles of butter! hmm, top with the raw onions and tomatoes, squeeze a tad of lemon atop the bhaji, and forget yourself!

Tarla Dalal    Well done Deepika. So glad the pav bhaji recipe came good. Yes, you can share the image you shot. Look at the right column of a recipe page and there is add your photo. This can be done from a desktop only and not a mobile phone. Thanks.
