Masala Pav (Spicy Stuffed Veggies Bun)


‘Masala Pav’ (Spicy Bread) is another famous Mumbai street food like ‘Pav Bhaji’. This is also a breakfast/snack recipe that can be made very easily. The ‘Pav’ or buns are sliced horizontally and then they are stuffed with a vegetable stuffing cooked with some spices. To add more taste I apply some butter in the ‘Pav’. If you wish you can lightly toast them too. Just serve it with tomato ketchup and some chopped onion and coriander. It is a good option for your kid’s lunch box too….
