The moment we decide to make Pav Bhaji, the first ingredient that we take out is the potatoes! However, this recipe will jolt you out of this belief.
This unique bhaji is made with doodhi and without potatoes at all. Coupled with the usual veggies like tomatoes, onions, cauliflower, carrots, peas, etc., and flavoured with the classic pav bhaji masala, this bhaji tastes just as awesome as the usual one.
Serve it with fresh butter-toasted pav bread to make a delectable snack. Try other recipes like Pav Sandwich or Pav Bhaji Masala .
