Masala Pav/How to make Masala pav

Masala pav is a street food and loved by many.Till few days i had never tasted Masala pav only heard about it,thanks to my devar (brother in law) who made me taste this at famous outlet near Wardhaman nagar in Nagpur.Taste was exactly like pav-bhaji but no mashed potatoes were there,i wanted to ask the recipe from the stall owner but a little hesitant (though i could Google the recipe) thought these people make the real taste and their recipes are the best one’s if stall owners are willing to share.After the stall was a bit less crowded i asked the guy who was making the masala on a huge tawa..

Bhaiya isme kya dala h (how is it made)

Oh God!!! That guy went so fast and thank God i was recording his voice😂went home and repeatedly heard his voice and got the recipe…finally

Masala Pav is quick recipe,perfect for kids lunch box or evening snack.This can be served as party snack or finger food.

Without saying much lets get the recipe
