Pav Bhaji

Pav bhaji translates to bread eaten with cooked vegetables. This is a very popular Indian street food which is beyond delicious. There is nothing that spells home than a hot buttered pav slathered with some spicy bhaji. I like to top mine with finely chopped onions, lime juice and green chilies.
