Pav bhaji is an Indian street food that consists of soft buns and thick vegetable curry topped with generous amount of butter. Pav means bun and bhaji means curry.  Pav bhaji is very easy to prepare and you can easily prepare it at home. For making the curry you can use vegetables like carrots, peas, capsicums, onions, tomatoes and potatoes. Here in this recipe I have used only potatoes. You can use any vegetable of your choice but the curry must be very thick. You can not eat pav bhaji with spoons because you need to tear the bun just like you eat roti(Indian bread) with your fingers and then you have to dip it into the curry and then put it into the mouth.
