Masala Pav

Masala Pav - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
It is very simple but yummy preparation of pav with potato and peas masala. This is a healthy version of vada-pav which is deep fried and more time taking. But as I always prefer to have a healthy version of our favourite food which is guilt free delicacy
