A very popular roadside snack in Maharashtra. I have had it in mumbai and pune i think those were the best. I had never tried this Whenever i get pav (dinner rolls ) from the market i will pav bhaji or vada pav. Never thought to make this. Last week i got fresh pomegranates so i decided to give it a try for this time . I followed a recipe which i had jotted down in my precious cooking book and added a bit of my own twist to it. Came out well for the first time. I was myself impressed that it was so tasty and my husband liked it too. So i thought of posting it in the blog.
