Pav-Bhaji | Mumbai Street Food | Maharashtrian Street Foods

Hello friends Good evening! After a typical north Indian delicacy today sharing a street food from Maharashtra. Yes Maharashtra where the Business City Mumbai is located. I visited Mumbai for the first time when I was in 7th standard. It was really a great tour for me. Visited the most popular places of Mumbai with my family. I enjoyed a lot! Still I remember all those places too. There only I had street food of Mumbai and one of  my favorite street food Pav-Bhaji. I love this one just. And after marriage I again shifted in Maharashtra but not in Mumbai but it was Pune. Again I got the flavor of Pav-Bhaji. But this time I got the chance to learn how to make Pav-Bhaji! So no miss!!! Sharing my Pav-Bhaji Recipe. Hope you will like it.
