PAV BHAJI

   Finally i am back after deepavali. The festival went on so good  and this time i wanted to share with you all a famous street food PAV BHAJI. This is my daughter’s favourite and i learnt this from my  cousin very long back.

This time i couldn’t able to click the pictures properly, since the weather was so bad on the day i made this. But i bet this recipe turned out very awesome and we all enjoyed it for breakfast.
