Mumbai Style Pao Bhaji | How to Make Pao Bhaji


Pao bhaji is a famous fast food that originated in Mumbai and now it is been popular all over Maharashtra.

I personally like pao bhaji very much and I often make it at home when I have a craving for it and believe me it’s mind-blowing.

It is the easiest and great option for dinner sometimes and one can also put it on the menu for the birthday celebration because it doesn’t require so much of time plus it doesn’t require very much hard work.

As you are aware there are lots of people who gather on any occasion or birthday party so the only hard thing for you may be to make a delicious vegetable curry (Bhaji) and bread roll (pao) you can easily get at any bakery if you don’t wish to make it at home.

Some people don’t have a microwave in their home so they always prefer to get pao from the bakery itself and it is served alongside with Amul butter, Onions and lemon wedges.

This is one of the decilious Indian street food, the best part of making pao bhaji is you can eat it as dinner also or if not then you can have it as breakfast it is according to your preference.

In my home, we make Pao bhaji at night and keep it as dinner and every one of us like to have it because it will make you full and you won’t have any space left to eat anything else but not everybody do this, There are some people who don’t like to have pao bhaji as dinner so no worries for them at least they can have it as breakfast and one can also give these people the same vegetable curry i.e. Bhaji with hot Rotis or paratha loaded with Amul butter.

Pao bhaji is fast food with a combination of spicy curry sauce and bread roll.

In street style, Pao bhaji people don’t add cauliflower because it is a little expensive but at home, you can add it because cauliflower gives a nice flavour.

Every one of us has a special craving for eating pao bhaji whether made at home or it can be a restaurant.

I personally like pao bhaji very much never matter when I have a craving for it. I often make it at home and believe me everyone in my home likes it a lot.

So let’s start making mouth-watering Pao bhaji with me and let’s hope it to be turn out the best.
