A typical Maharashtrian snack, Misal Pav. Both filling and tasty too! more



The variety and innovative ideas that some of the food stalls/ restaurants come up with in Bombay are unbelievable. This one for instance became popular when introduced at Gupta Chaat Centre. I remember reading about this in the times of India and the recipe was quite simple, basically a grilled vegetable sandwich, topped with sweet and spicy chutney along with sev. I used 3 slices of bread for one sandwich. Made it at home today and it was an instant hit!
