Pav/ Pao Bhaji is very popular Indian Street Food or i would say it is the King of Street Foods. I still remember those days, we use to have it almost everyday after college, this is one thing we never got bored off and i am sure you all will agree with me..:)

In this recipe the main Spice is Pao Bhaji Masala, that you can find in any Indian Grocery store.. This is very easy to make dish and is a lifesaver when you don't have enough time to cook .
