Pav Bhaji

Updated: Jun 26, 2023

Pav bhaji is an Indian fast food dish made up of a thick vegetable curry (bhaji) and a soft bread roll (pav). Its history can be traced back to Maharashtra, India.

The dish started out as a quick lunch for Mumbai textile mill employees. Pav bhaji was later served in restaurants all over town. Pav bhaji is now available in India and abroad, from street vendors to fine dining establishments.

Pav bhaji is a spiced mashed vegetable dish eaten with bread in a thick gravy. Potatoes, onions, carrots, chillies, peas, bell peppers, and tomatoes are popular ingredients in curry. The curry is typically cooked on a flat griddle (tava) and served hot by street vendors. The traditional accompaniment to the curry is a soft white bread roll, but other bread types such as chapati, roti, or brown bread may also be used.
