Looks simple.. have tried it too once or twice.. but doesn't come as tasty as my mumbai- friend makes it.. :)

Anything special.. or is that I am a lousy cook? :think: :Ksp:

pav bhaji masala


all masala's are the same.. :Ksp: (for all practical purposes that is.. :P :P.. microscopic contents or proportions might be different.. :sm12:)..

(some mix of chillies, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg.. may be methi/venthayam, and some dhal-variety.. what else can it be.. :) )..

Try it up with garam masala.. :wink:

03-11-2006, 01:01 AM

then me don't like most names.. :00: :00: ahh.... do u mean u dont like us calling u thaatha? :ahha:

whatelse makes u embarrassing.... :think: ..did i talk anythin offensive :think: if so, sorry vasan.

03-11-2006, 01:10 AM
ahh.... do u mean u dont like us calling u thaatha?

rr.. not that.. those are jolly names we give to each other.. more than welcome to use them.. :b:

i meant people using racial or similar offensive names.. for foreigners, etc.. especially (and nearly always) behind their backs, and that sorta thing.. How many times Chinese people are called names not flattering? Or african americans?..

too many indians call them with lots of names - and they will use it in hindi/tamil etc..

I can't stand such stuff.. athaithaan solla vanthEn.. :oops:

..did i talk anythin offensive :think: if so, sorry vasan.

yeah.. yeah.. everytime you say you went for coffee, with out inviting us.. thats totally offensive.. not at all good.. :snooty: :snooty:

Other than that, you are nice as sweet and low and friendly as fat-free-lactose-free-milk.. :wink: :yes:


ps: rr.. BigChef.. :sm03: Sorry about all the digression/sideys... :sm08:

I'm confused :think:

what is pav? :think: (and how to slit it open :think: )

this is a snack right? :think:
does anyone hvae a picture of what this is supposed to look like please?

03-12-2006, 05:54 PM
Pav is a sort of bread. Have u seen cross buns, it wud look similar except with more salt (no sweetners)and bit hard.

Use a knife to slit it open ....if u want pav to look good...

r else use ur hands...

03-12-2006, 05:56 PM

03-12-2006, 06:00 PM
oooh thank you mr vampy...
it looks like a cross between pitta bread and hot cross buns :think:

so the recipe is really for the veggie mix .

thank you.


03-13-2006, 03:47 AM
You could even use hot dog/ burger buns.. :) No trouble..

if you like you could mildly toaste it too..

Best I like is french bread and sour dough one.. Can't beat it.. (it doesn't have to be split and all that blah blah.. take a piece, use it to scoop a bit of curry and bingo.. :wink: :P..)
