Pav Bhaji is street dish consisting of a thick vegetable curry, served with two lightly toasted buttered rolls aka pavs. Pav bhaji has many variations in ingredients and garnishes, but is essentially a spiced mixture of mashed vegetables usually cooked on a flat griddle.
Hot, spicy, flavourful bhaji served with crunchy onions and slivers of lime, coupled with butter-dripping, just-off-the-tawa pavs — pav bhaji is a favourite street food for good reason. While Mumbai city in Maharashtra can rightly claim to be the birthplace of this much-loved dish, different parts of India have added their own flavors and variations to this popular street food.
