Pav Bhaji Recipe

Pav Bhaji will be my dinner menu on most of the weekends. Initially I used to have it in restaurant. Later thought of trying it at home. My first attempt of this recipe was using the Pav Bhajji masala that is available in the market. But this time I prepared it without using any readymade masala and it turned out to be very tasty.
