Pav Bhaji-A famous street food of Mumbai

I do not feel good to see how badly vegetables has mashed to become one and served as Pav Bhaji but I have to admit they taste so good that you cannot stop eating unless you finish with two pav.;)
Yummy Potatoes,beautiful cauliflower,most savoured green peas and tangy tomatoes mix with red chili,pav bhaji masala to bring awesome taste to it…Topped with Mr.Butter and fresh coriander leaves,roasted buttery Pav.You cannot dare to refuse to have a bite and then you can’t stop.;)

Most of you have had Pav Bhaji during their visits to Mumbai.This Indian Fast Food originated as Maharashtra cuisine and now served at most of the part of India.If you are health conscious,just skip the butter and enjoy the healthiest fast food.Yayyyyy!
