Pav means bun and Bhaji means mashed vegetable from potato, carrot, green pepper, cauliflower with pav Bhaji masala. I use Everest Pav Bhaji masala, it turned out like hotels pav Bhaji. I cant imagine Pav Bhaji without butter. Butter is most important ingredient for Pav Bhaji. I know some diet people wont go for it, but for me Diet is on holiday for Pav Bhaji.
