          Prepared this scrumptious, classic Indian street food Pav Bhaji. But in this Pav Bhaji
delicacy, the hariyali(green) base comes from a combination of spinach, green peas, and green peppers. I prepared it as an experiment, and now it has become one of the most favorite snacks that I prepare once a week. Once you find it heavenly tasting, then you will make it again and again.
