Pav is bun and bhaji is mashed mixed vegetable curry prepared with pav bhaji masala. It is easy to make at home. The masala is prepared by adding a combination of..flavorful spice masalas mixed with onion tomato based gravy. I used Eastern Pav Bhaji masala pwd and it gave the best seasoning for this dish.
