Masala Pav Recipe | How To Make Mumbai Special Masala Pav Recipe | Masala Pav Chaat Recipe

Masala Pav Recipe
Masala Pav is a popular roadside chaat of Mumbai. Like other chaats I have tasted Masala Pav in my Hometown, Tamil Nadu too. Masala Pav is nothing but a spicy onion-tomato masala curry stuffed between soft butter toasted Pav(Soft Buns/Dinner Rolls). This tastes so good and spicy and I love it more than Pav Bhaji.
I don't have any Idea about how they make the curry for Masala Pav until I saw Nalini's Post. Thanks to Nalini for sharing this easy peasy method, only thing I changed is I prepared the masala separately in a kadai and toasted the pav in griddle with butter and then added the masala and stuffed it. This is so yummy and addictive chaat, my kids loved it a lot and asked me for more but I didn't have enough masala. And Next day made it again for their lunch as Masala Pav Sandwich. So whenever, you plan to try this make sure you make enough masala, as it is addictive even kids will not stop with one masala pav :) Now off to the recipe
