Hello,

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.

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.
