Pav Bhaji -- How to make Pav Bhaji Recipe -- Mumbai Pav Bhaji Recipe

Pav Bhaji
Pav Bhaji is a Mumbai street food, consisting of curry i.e. bhaji served with pav or soft bread roll. 
I read some where in the web or in news paper about the invention of it, was invented for textile mill workers who needs a fast and tummy full lunchtime dish. It should also be protein, vitamin and fiber rich as well as should not make the workers lazy after having it. Very interesting right. Now it became every household food.  This is the right season to make it, because we get all the vegetables. I like to serve this bhaji as  sidedish for roti also.
A very easy dish to make, if we have Pav ready. We can get it in any grocery shop or we can make them at home also. Still I have to perfect in making Pav, so for now I get them from grocery shop only.
