its really very nice ..and also i tried with pavbhaji .......we enjoyed it thx for giving such a nutritious and tasty recepie......i was searching for a different recepie using methi leaves and urs is so good....


itried his dish, it`s yummy. i used garam masala instead of pav masala.


this recipe is good...except for one thing,when using methi leaves don`t garnish with coriander leaves it`ll spoil the entire dish.this is for all recipes using methi leaves.

shifa firoz

this was easy and had a different. i used jeera instead of musturd seeds and garam masala instead of pav bhaji masala.. rest everyhing was same. Thanks for sharing the recipe.


This is an excellent dish.I tried it by adding garam masala instead of pav bhaji masala.Next time,for a change, I`m going to try with drumstick tree leaves,instead of methi leaves.
