Masal Pav Recipe
Masal Pav Recipe
Masala Pav is a famous Mumbai street food which is the tastier version on Pav Bhaji. The Pav buns are dunk on a masala base of onions, tomato & capsicum on a hot tawa with spices and toasted with butter. With every bite you are sure to trans into a burst of flavors. Masala Pav is so easy to put together, you can make your own homemade pav buns / ladi pav or get the store bought ones. Make this for an evening snack along with chair or coke. A perfect appetizer if you are having guests over or organizing a party or potluck at home. I have used a little of the pav bhaji masala in this recipe for the base although there are variations where the pav bhaji masala is skipped, you can do it either way and the result would be awesome nevertheless. Serve masala pav with raw onions, corriander and a lemon wedge ;-) and be generous with butter as that adds the awesome flavor to masal pav.
