Chatpata Pav Bhaji




In continuation of my earlier post for homemade pav, I want to share the king of mumbai street food "pav bhaji" which is now popular all over India. This chatpata (spicy n tangy) buttery dish with a rich assortment of vegetables is served with pav and it is an eternal favorite and a complete meal in itself. I don't want to keep you waiting so here is the recipe.
