Pao Bhaji

Pao Bhaji is Indian street food. Pao Bhaji is a potato/tomato based curry that is often eaten as a snack in western India. Pao means bun and Bhaji means vegetables.

It's Mr. Husband's favorite. Pao bhaji is relatively easy to cook and tastes delectable!

You certainly won't regret this one :)

Let's get cooking...

1. 2-3 tablespoons of ghee
2. 4 potatoes boiled, peeled, mashed.
3. 1/2 small cauliflower boiled, mashed.

8. 4-5 tsp pao bhaji masala
