Indian street food is all about flavours. No matter the day or time, a plate of delicious fast-food dish from any corner of the country can make your day. One of the most popular fast foods, often eaten as a breakfast, is the pav bhaji. It won’t be an understatement to say that it is one of the most flavoursome and hearty meals out there. It is a delicious blend of vegetables cooked in butter and an aromatic spice mixture. It is served with butter toasted pav or buns, onion slices and lemon wedges. It can be easily named the ‘breakfast for champions’, and even Kunal Kemmu agrees.
