Paneer Pav Bhaji and Tawa Butter Pulav
The first thing that gets my attention when I reach Bombay Pav Bhaji and Tawa Butter Pulav on Bannerghatta Road is the sight of the butter soaked Pav roasting on the Tawa. If that doesn't activate a street food lover's taste buds, I do not know what will. This outlet came to life in late 2013 - 'sixteen months ago, to be precise', says one of the three vendors, Raghu Gowda. The idea of it sprang in Mumbai about ten years ago - 'like almost all the chaat bandis of this town!', he jokes. 'What do you think is people's favourite here?' I ask, and pop comes the answer - 'Nodi maadem (look Ma'am), we sell two things here - Pav Bhaji and Pulav - in different varieties. It is extremely difficult for me to choose from them. Look around, what do you think?' I see an equal number of plates of both, but I am able to determine one thing - most of the Pav Bhaji plate holders have Paneer in their plates. 'Everyday is a new challenge,' he says, 'and the happiest thing is right here, the work I do, and the happy faces I get to see!' I cannot talk anymore as my plate of Pav Bhaji awaits me.
- It is worth mentioning that they use only Amul butter in all of their dishes.
- If one isn't a street food enthusiast , or does not enjoy Pav Bhaji much, I recommend going there just to catch a sight of him making a bowl of Bhaji. That shall do the work.
