Think of Maharashtrian cuisine, and one of the first three delicacies to come to mind would definitely have ‘pav’ in it. From the likes of vada pav, misal pav or dabeli, to the quintessential pav bhaji, Maharashtrian cuisine is all about it. Pav Bhaji though, is the pride and joy of Mumbai's street food scene. A host of vegetables mashed together and cooked in masalas and butter, bhaji is definitely one wholesome meal you can’t resist.
