Pav Bhaji

Pav Bhaji:

Chaat Foods/ Items- These are the most popular street foods in India. These are one of the most common favourites for many of us. Hope none would stop getting attracted to chaat items. I am no different in that.I love them as occasional treats. I always like pav bhaji more when it comes to my kid as it has a blend of veggies and getting a whole wheat pav bun is comparatively easier than finding whole wheat pooris. This is our favourite early dinner menu once in a month or whenever I get a whole wheat pav bun. I am yet to master the art of making buns/ bread at home.
