Masala pav is a quick snack made with pav, Mumbai street food made in a jiffy over tawa itself. Learn how to make masala pav easily at home with full video, step by step pictures.
Masala pav is one thing I drool when I am browsing instagram. I had no idea trying at home, but this week when I got pav buns, I thought I should give this easy masala pav a shot, since it is very simple to prepare and worth giving a try. I was really blown away how tasty it turned out to be. I am so glad that I have a recipe now to quickly enjoy something very similar to pav bhaji. I love all street foods like these and always wish to visit places like Mumbai, Bangalore or even in Chennai where such street foods are available in plenty. I have no idea why my India trips are so hectic and complicated, that I feel like I don’t have time for anything. I even visit my parents for a day or two🤨. I think I should plan my trip better and give priorities in everything. Not sure if my wish would come true, let me keep dreaming so that one day my dream comes true😄
