I planned to cook street food for lunch today and my choice was Masala Pav! Masala pav is a popular street food of Mumbai, Maharashtra. The Masala is cooked on a griddle and topped over the toasted bread before serving.
If you love pav bhaji , you will love this variation too! Masala pav tastes simply delicious and easy to cook too. So, check out the recipe and make it for yourself!
