Khada Pav Bhaji, Restaurant Style Pav Bhaji by Tarla Dalal
Viewed 452 times
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.
