Hi, u`r receipe is very good and we can add peas,garam masala also. we will get pav bhaji masala in the stores but tell us how to prepare in the home.
The recipe is great. But u have not mention about making of pav bhaji masala. I mean how to make a pav bhaji masala. It is very hard to make pav bhaji untill u have pav bhaji masala. So pls tell me about it.
Reciepe is short and simple..but how do you prepare Pau Bhaaji masala?? You need to give a short reciepe of that too..Thanks..Regards.
It is fine.U can add1 or 2 finely chopped green chillies and green peas.
Its really very simple to prepare.But you have forgot to give one thing.that is "How to prepare that pav bhaji masala?" If you give that one it will be very useful to many people who prepare this for first time.I expect the reply .Thanks in advance.
Its excellent , but as we have heard ginger garlic and tikhaa (mirchi) is the base of PAV BHAJI u can increase the rartio of DIS stuff

This recipe is awesome! So far the best pav bhaji recipe.. My family loved it.
Being a south-indian, cooking north indian dishes is not my expertise. I came across this reciepe and decided to give it a try.
It was explained very well and to my surprise the pav bhaji turned out very good. Good job Vidhu and looking forward to see some more receipes from you.
I am learning cooking and have a passion to cook north Indian dishes..The Pav Bhaji receipe by vidhu turned out so good that my husband made me cook the same everyday ;-)..Any more recipes in the pipeline vidhu...:)
