Spicy, Yummy – Mouthwatering Juhu Beach Pav Bhaji Recipe!

On our recent trip to Mumbai, as decided, we spent the second day of our expedition, strolling by the amazing Juhu Beach. All in all, it was a great time. As it was the weekend, the beach was thronged by a sea of people.

We devoted most of our time trying out the spicy food items being served at the stalls. There was everything ranging from North Indian specialities to chaats, Chinese, South Indian, and junk food! Of all, I would be biased for Pav Bhaji.

It was an unforgettable melange of all tastes. While hubby couldn’t resist to order another serving, kids too went in for another round of the simple yet tasty ‘pav’. So in all we had around three generous servings of the yummy Pav Bhaji. And it was worth it!

I recommend Juhu Beach Pav Bhaji, it is a must try! But for those who cannot make the trip right away, here I would like to share special Pav Bhaji recipe..
